ESET is taking almost 20% of my cpu is that normal?


Recommended Posts

Recently, I have experienced an issue where ESET will use almost 20-30 percent of my CPU. The eset service(2) usually consumes a high percentage of the CPU, but it doesn't happen all the time. I tried to reinstall ESET by first uninstalling it using ESET Uninstallation tool and then reinstalling it with a newer ESET version but the issue is still there. does anybody know how to fix it?

Please carry on as follows:

  1. When the issue occurs, enable advanced operating system logging under Tools -> Diagnostics -> Advanced logging in the advanced setup
  2. After 30-60s stop logging
  3. Collect logs with ESET Log Collector and upload the generated archive to a safe location (e.g. OneDrive, Dropbox,...) and drop me a personal message with a download link.

It appears that the issue is caused by the ESET Browser privacy & Security extension added to Brave which is not a supported browser. Does removing it from Brave make a difference?
