  1. Two days ago, I disabled Fast Startup and eliminated Sleep from the Windows Power Menu. It seems like the problem has disappeared. So, the final solution was to disable Fast Startup, as, if any system exhibits this symptom, it might not deal too well with Hybernation in general, so both Sleep and Fast Startup should be avoided.
  2. That's really bad news. I checked my SSD just now with CrystalDiskMark, but it shows 94% health. Is that bad? Should I try to keep Advanced Logging enabled, since I cannot trigger the issue? Basically, is it for sure a HW issue? Is it worth trying to search EIS logs anymore? If not, can the folks here at ESET Forums help diagnose such HW issues?
  3. Well, a quick update. While the problem mentioned in this thread disappeared (or at least so it seems), the High Disk Usage problem re-appeared. I will soon post new logs with "Details for Tech Support" enabled on my other thread, please take a look at them.
  4. Sorry I didn't post logs yesterday, didn't get the time. However, what I did is I uninstalled EIS 13 normally, without using ESET Uninstaller, but from the Control Panel, and installed EIS 14 right over. After switching the Firewall to Interactive Mode and opening Firefox, I immediately got a request from ESET to allow incoming and outgoing connections with Firefox, request I didn't receive when I experienced the aforementioned issue. The version of ESET is, the version of ESET installed when I had the issue was (also present on the latest version of EIS 13) and the ve
  5. It seems that Marcos won't reply if folk drops the logs in his private messages, as per his request. So, here are both my logs. Both on Google Drive, since one is bigger than 100 MB. https://drive.google.com/file/d/156M_0K-A9QVMmyAdDl9kVNTNd79v8Umz/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PUg7BTAfHZ_592-8SOniIGBDJzRLQv2r/view?usp=sharing
  6. This is the exact issue I have recently had with ESET. Turns out, a possible fix is an in-place upgrade for Windows. It can be achieved by creating an installation media for Windows using the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft's website and launching the installation while Windows is still running. That will trigger an upgrade of Windows. I suggest trying this, it seemed to solve my issue, at least temporarily.
  7. Thank you for your response, will come back with some logs in about 9 hours, as right now I don't have the time to install and reinstall ESET. That setting is already disabled, using Firefox 83.0. It may be enabled if the configuration file for Firefox was created using some new version, but the version of Firefox that created the configuration file on this system was from ~2 years ago. Anyway, what makes you think it could be Firefox, since the issue doesn't exist on any other system I own (all of them use ESET in combination with Firefox) and the issue disappears as soon as I un
  8. I downgraded to EIS 13. This time, without even switching to Interactive Firewall, ESET started blocking most websites as soon as I installed it. I'm not sure what I did to deserve total silence, but can I get some help? It's been more than a month since I have started experiencing problems. I really don't want to switch protection solutions, I've been using ESET for almost 10 years, but if this is the kind of support I'm getting, then I will be switching.
  9. Hello! After a reinstall of ESET Internet Security and an in-place upgrade of Windows, I set my firewall up for Interactive use and as soon as I rebooted the OS, while allowing all Internet communications requested by programs thorugh ESET, sometimes some websites get blocked by ESET Firewall. They either render incompletely, either they don't load at all. Firefox reports that the server I'm trying to access cannot be found. Disabling ESET Firewall fixes this issue, but no setting inside the program does. I tried disabling all rules created by me through the ESET prompts, switching t
  10. I couldn't stand the problem anymore, decided to do an in-place upgrade. That only works if the installation media is the same compilation or greater than the installed version of Windows. That seems to have taken care of the issue for now, but all the installed updates are gone. If it occurs again, I'll update this thread. If Marcos can notice something out of place in the logs I sent, their reply is welcome.
  11. Situation update: after a Wake from Sleep of the system, the disk usage spiked again - something that hasn't happened before. It only happened after a power off, power on cycle. It seems like the System process (I think explorer.exe, not sure) consistently reads and writes to the disk, then ESET kicks in and reads and writes to the disk. I will soon send you a new set of logs.
  12. Thanks for the response! Forgot to mention in the OP that I'm using ESET Internet Security 64 bit. Sent you a PM with logs collected while the issue was present. However, ESET turns off Advanced OS Logging after a reboot, so I'm not sure if the information collected is good. I reactivated the option after the reboot while the disk was seeing high usage from ekrn, I hope that helps. As a situation update, it seems the issue only appears if Fast Startup is used. At normal startup, no such high disk activity is present, but the issue completely disappears if ESET is uninstalled.
  13. Hello! In the last month, ekrn.exe has been reading a lot at the Windows startup, so much that my welcome screen takes about 2 minutes on an SSD. I tried reinstalling ESET with esetuninstaller.exe and disabling startup scan, none helped. I have three more PCs running ESET Internet Security and none of them have this issue. Using Windows 10 x64, Xeon X5650 CPU, 16 GB DDR3, Kingston A400 as (C:) drive. I have 2 more physical disks in my system, none of them see such read activity. What could be the cause? Can this be solved without fully reinstalling Windows?
