  1. Eset updated to v13.2.16.0 yesterday and last completed a successful definition update over 4 hours ago. Wondering why my PC has slowed to a crawl I opened Resource Monitor to find that ekrn.exe is using over 12GB of physical memory, currently 93% memory usage and still increasing. The Eset tray icon is continuously spinning and the program has been reporting "Module update in progress" for at least the last hour that I am aware of, possibly since the last update check over 4 hours ago for all I know. I have tried clicking "Cancel Update" but it is not responding. Current stats for ekrn.exe are 132,933 threads 18.4% CPU Memory 12,419,948 KB Going to try restarting my PC now...
  2. I've had this problem for the past 2 weeks. ESET service is filling up to 90%+ of my RAM memory (total of 32GB) and my OS-drive is also getting filled up almost to full. Can someone please help me?
