In the advanced setup -> Tools -> Diagnostics, select to generate complete application dumps and click OK. Then open the Diagnostics setup again and click Create (dump).

Next, gather logs with ESET Log Collector, upload the generated archive to a safe location and drop me a message with a download link.

Will it be best to wait until the next time it hogs more than the nominal 200-350mb of memory,Or can this be done at any point?

We don't need a dump from a point when the memory usage is normal so please wait a bit until it grows above the standard usage.

157 MB allocated by ekrn.exe is a pretty normal value but 1 GB reported by the OP is not.

When playing games, your CPU is used to the maximum extent which increases its temperature and the fan speed. Do you mean that with protection paused or after uninstalling ESET the fan remains silent while playing resource-intensive games?

Hi @Marcos
 

We are also facing this same issue on our client PC. The ekrn process took more than 200 MB (Refer attach image) Please refer below link to download the dump logs.  We couldn't collect logs from ESET logs collector as it took more than 30 min to collect the data.

Product : ESET Endpoint Security
Version : 7.1.2045.5
OS : Windows 10 Pro

@tommy456, do you use a supported email client (e.g. MS Outlook) and antispam? If so, could you try disabling the option below or address lists in the antispam setup and rebooting the machine and see if the issue goes away?

After the most recent Win 10 x(64) cumulative update, ekrn.exe is back to using 57K memory versus the 90K+ memory it was using previously. Go figure ………..?

I don't think you read it right: 64К Private Bytes / 160K Working Set.

If your referring to my posting, "ekrn.exe is back to using 57K memory versus the 90K+ memory," both references were for private bytes per Process Explorer display.
