As you already have discovered, NOD32 is the Cause of your Freeze.

Lets go back to protocal filtering.

Check the box for: [ ] Applications marked as Internet browsers and email clients
Uncheck (If it doesn't by itself) [X] Ports and applications marked as internet browsers and email clients

Then go to Web Access Protection.
Then web Browers

Put an X in the Box for Iexplore.exe

Try your download, let me know what happens.

did what you mentioned above. couldn't put an X in box for iexplorer.exe, it would only allow it to be checked and unchecked. it was currently checked, so i tried to uncheck it and test a download.

results, so far, are total CPU usage hovering around 24-32% for about a minute or two, and then it still shoots up to 100% with ekrn.exe using 78-99%. :)

At this point, you may want to open a new post.
Something like, ESET settings causing 100% CPU useage.
You may find someone on the forum who is more familiar with it than I am.

If I have time, just cause I'm curious, I may D/L ESET and see if I can duplicate the problem.

Hello blackbat123...

There is a workaround you can try for this problem. It will reduce the amount of real-time protection, but will reduce the load on your processor. Be sure to set ESET to scan regularly if you do this and scan anything you download before you execute the file.

Open the ESET Smart Security window and press F5 to open the configuration window. In the left frame, click on "Real-time file system protection". In the right pane, in the "Scan On" section, remove the ticks from "File Open", "File Creation", and "Diskette Access". Click "Ok", restart the machine, and see if the processor use is less...then try a download.
