Bug Report: Permanently High CPU Usage

Recommended Posts

EDIT: Title is incorrect. The title Should have been "BUG REPORT: Permanently High CPU Usage"


Kaspersky Lab:


I believe that I have found a problem with at least one of your products.


When Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 (k) is running and the member files from the "MaxxMEM2_Preview.zip" archive are browsed after extracted, the system experiences seemingly permanent 100% CPU usage with high Kernel Time.


To Reproduce the Problem:

1. Boot Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3.

2. Launch Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 (k).

3. Extract archive.

4. Browse to archives extracted member files using Explorer Shell.

5. Check Windows Task Manager's "Performance" tab to see CPU usage.


The archive was downloaded from:



Web page that referenced the archive:



I am using Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3.


Please correct the problem.

Windows 8.1 all updates, non-ancient hardware, and and KIS 2015 TR are all good when right click MaxxMEM2_preview.exe and select properties. About ten seconds of high CPU, that self-subsides.


Right click MaxxMEM2_preview.exe > Scan for viruses: This took about two minutes and used 30% CPU.


XP is dead, and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 (k) is not the current version.


We can't fix this here, on this user forum. Please inform Tech Support of your findings that you experience with ancient OS and not-current Kaspersky version.
