Seems that manual scan (fshoster32.exe) uses only one CPU on multi-core hardware. Platform: W7 64bit. A lot of free capacity. Elapsed times could be much shorter if all hw capacity could be used. Any comments on that?
blaah... wrong judgement from me. fssm32.exe eats all it can... But just wondering what fshoster32.exe is doing, when the scanner manager usually does the heavy job?

Not exactly related to the manual scanning, but tot he fssm32.exe and fshoster32.exe files.
I have this eeepc with Celeron 900 (sloooooooooooow) + 2 GB and an SSD and F-S IS 2015 installed.
When I start the PC for a couple of minutes those two files are taking much of the CPU and have also heavy disc activity. After some 5 - 10 minutes that is over and their activity is much smaller and the response times in other activities are what I should expect.
For some reason this does not happen on other (faster) PC's like Athlon 5000+ the the relative amount.
Is that normal or should I dig deeper into that?
When you turn your computer on, especially if it has been turned off for a while, our product will have new virus databases to download and apply. What you're describing is most likely new databases being extracted. They are very tightly packed and it takes a couple of minutes to extract them. Disk speed is important for the operation speed here; old spinning disks take longer time than SSDs.
You can right-click the tray icon and select "Open common settings" to view updates and when they are downloaded & applied.
Thanks, but I don't that is it, because it happens every day or happened whan I had that in daily use. I do not have a recollection whether or not it happened when I restarted the PC during the day.
It is with and SSD in the PCI-e bus.
You make it sound that if is updated that would not be normal.
Thanks again https://community.f-secure.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/163
Booted the eeePC first time after erealy June.
After two hours all the updates were installed and a software update was installed.
After the subsequent boot the PC was responsive in 2-3 minutes which is OK for me with that slow a PC.
Will keep watching.
The bad news was that something curious happened with the subscriptions. I'll open a case with support for that.
Got educated again to mention you need to attach the at-sign infront of the id like @Ville and not paste the URL of the ID like https://community.f-secure.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/163
