Hello  @richbuff :bow_tone3: , x-posted, did not see your post:upside_down: , “yes”, I will get :eyes: tested:wink:  

Hello  @rpol,

Additional to  @richbuff 

:one:  Operating system version & build ? 

:two:  Is the power usage high all the time? 

:three:  Has high power usage issue always existed? 

  • If “no”,  when did high power usage start ? 

:four: In the 24hrs preceeding the high power usage issue, were there any hardware, software, network, environmental changes, any changes at all?

  • If  “yes”, please detail the changes? 

Please let us know? 

Thank you

Free version 20.0.14.1085 (f)
Its running a scan right now so the usage is higher.
CPU 10% to 55%
Mem 540MB
Disk 10-200MB/s
Power Usage very high

I notice that even when there is no scan it show power very high and high Memory.

I was asking because maybe I should be using the 64 bit version if you have it??

Re 64bit, please refer to advice from  @Schulte  in  @nexon’s post 32 bit application on 64 bit system? & an old topic, from the original Kaspersky Forum, raised by  @jameswesthead, KIS 2016 Runs as 32 bit on 64 bit Windows 10

Thank you

Thank you for your quick response.

The version is 1903 (OS Build 18362.476)

I’ve had in on here for 3 years or so.
I can’t remember how it was installed.
Steps 2 and 3 sound too complex for me.
Thank you for sharing; KIS 2016 Runs as 32 bit on 64 bit Windows 10
I don’t need to read that, I just was asking if that was the reason it ran hot because sometimes thats the problem.

I have the Microsoft Windows Defender protection on but it uses no power and no memory, so I was wondering if the stats I gave you were high or if that is just how hot KIS runs. So if there is a way to get it to use less power then please let me know. Otherwise I’ll have to live with it.

Please check with MSCONFIG.
