Strange Initiial Eset Forum Connection Behavior

4 posts in this topic

I have been plagued with this issue for some time.

Whenever I connect to the Eset forum the first time after a cold boot using IE11, the forum takes a long time to display its web page. Like 30 secs. or so. I took a screen shot using TCPView of what is going on. What are all these ekrn.exe connections to a Cloudfront server I assume is hosting Eset forum content about?

Hello Itman,

that is strange. The ESET Security Forum is hosted in a cloud indeed.

Is the situation the same with a different browser(s)? I tried it myself on IE 11 and it loaded almost instantly.

What exact Windows and ESET version do you have?

Regards, P.R.

It was better today; connected right away. Also ekrn.exe connections were less but numbered around 20. Why all the ekrn.exe connections? That is what is strange to me.

Hello itman,

not sure, but I assume that the connections are just open, not active anymore.
