eset Internet Security v13.2.15.0 Startup Scan Never Ends and cripples the internet by reducing internet speed

Recommended Posts

Since Yesterday I am facing eset Slow Startup Scan that goes on forever forcing me to temporarily disable the startup scan. I have once reinstalled the ESET Internet through Online Installer. But the issue was not resolved. Then I uninstalled it and reinstalled an offline version of the eset Internet Security v13.2 from the eset website. During the startup scan the internet is crippled with slow speeds making the internet usage very difficult. If i disable the auto startup scan in the scheduler and reboot the PC runs smoothly.

I did a initial scan twice of my PC's drives but no virus or malware was found.  I even used the eset online scanner and that too found no malware or virus. How to resolve this? pls help. 

 

Windows 10 x64

Hello @mgn,

it might be related to the issues reported at https://forum.eset.com/topic/24746-av-is-blocking-loading-webpages/

So if you would like to troubleshoot the issue with us, proceed in a following way:

0. Enable Startup scan

1. Disable Protected service and Self-defense under HIPS settings

2. Reboot your system

3. Download and apply https://forum.eset.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=18636 

4. Reboot the system again

5. Download Procdump https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/procdump 

6. run it from an elevated command line with following parameters: procdump -ma -e 1 -n 10 ekrn.exe

7. If the issue occurs again, the dumps will be generated

collect them, pack with output from ESET log collector, upload to a safe location and send me and @Marcos download details via a private message to check.

Does temporarily disabling the 2 startup scans in scheduler make the issue go away?

yes. I have now disabled the 2 startup scans and after that the PC runs fine.  But I am not happy with the startup scan disabled as it is not working as it should.  Now what is the way forward?
