I have recently noticed on a couple clients that the LDAV.exe process multiplies over time. The core is 2017.3 and the client is x64 Windows 10 Enterprise build 1709. I have attempted to reinstall and reimage the machine with no luck. Initially, the computer acts and runs fine; LDAV.exe will have 1-2 processes running. I have the understanding that multiple processes are normal for different AV tasks but to have an excess of 10-20 processes seems a bit much. These processes are consuming loads of resources. I have only noticed this on one other 1709 build in our environment. The majority of our Windows 10 devices are pre-1709 or Windows 7 and they do not exhibit this behavior, nor do the remainder of the 1709 builds. The agent builds and AV versions are identical throughout the company. Is anyone aware of a recent Windows update, Kaspersky update, or other public change that may be at play here? Below I have attached an output of the current running processes on one of the computers in question after roughly 16 hours of a fresh boot.
Thanks for your help and suggestions.
