As previously mentioned it was working OK and as expected when it was returned - something happened afterwards totally beyond my control.Edited: something appears to have happened After this time: 11/6/2012 2.15am Eset Kernel Virus signature database successfully updated As the articles you linked and Pctek suggested, uninstal it then reinstall it.
Als u het bericht ' Ernstige Fout (0x101a)’ ontvangt tijdens het bijwerken van de virus database kenmerken, is het waarschijnlijk te wijten aan een of meer beschadigde update bestanden op uw computer.
Om de fout op te lossen dient u de onderstaande instructies te volgen: Uw ESET security product wordt vanaf nu automatisch bijgewerkt.
Its possible that if this has happened then Nod may have gotten its downloaded modules damaged because of other installs needing a reboot.
The other problem is its "Vista" - it can be unstable and sometimes doesn't need much to break it.
I’ve googled the error (0 x101a) and found this thread page=content&id=SOLN537 So after closing all tabs down I’ll reboot and try to run it manually, I won’t be uninstalling and reinstalling as yet. Its only been the last 6 mths or so starting to see more physical memory usage and only have 1/4 the amounts of tabs I use to have open.
Rebooting seems to fix soo many things, washing machine, cell ph, heres hoping it will fix this. Opened task manager and resource monitor saw physical memory at 86% and climbing as I closed tabs (only 15 open). Where some people have a problem with it failing to update and CPU use really high and climbing. They’re talking about memory leakage, don’t know what they mean. How often should I restart my PC obviously if I have to with updates but is there a common practice, like once a week? I have only been restarting if I had to with the updates.
It has tried to run automatically going round and round and its now changed from orange to red. Maximum protection is not ensured Virus Signature is out of date After googling I realised that Windows Defender could be the problem as it would have been reactived by default on the Vista reinstall. But on NOD when I select update and manually try to start Update Virus signature database nothing happens.
Also just tried options Smart scan and Frequently used and both say failed to run scan. Ive left on Windows Firewall as I read that NOD32 Antivirus 5 doesn't have a firewall, but Eset Smart Security does, and I believe I have the former.:thanks Windows Defender comes automatically with Vista, which I have now stopped.
Also saw under memory, resource monitor “ekrn.exe” the biggest user at 1,971,320 kb (Commit) and it hasn’t changed for hours. Quote “ESET support called me this morning - they have the process dump, the sys-inspector log and have confirmed that there is an issue they are aware of that the Dev team are working on - a fix is expected in the next build - whenever that is...”Quote But again looks as if i can fix it with a reboot, so I’ll keep closing tabs.looks like the problem occurred 3 days after it was returned, 11/6/2012 after 2.15am but before 7.14 am One problem could be over stressing the PC, having 15tabs open on that PC with the amount of power it doesn't have & Vista could have caused some sort of corruption (1 possible cause) Another is if modules are upgraded which they do every so often the PC sometimes needs to be restarted, leaving it running 24/7 doesn't allow this to happen.looks like the problem occurred 3 days after it was returned, 11/6/2012 after 2.15am but before 7.14 am . Did you read the link about the recent occurances of high CPU usage for ekrn.exe, mine is still 1,971,320 kb. Currently I haven't restarted since I got it back on 8th.
Currently I haven't restarted since I got it back on 8th. Windows updates for example come through all the time and some do need to have the PC restarted even if they dont prompt.
I ran a manual update as well before returning and there was nothing to download, I also ran a manual full system scan after putting back data, all clean.
