It appears to be a file created by and essential for ESET NOD32 Antivirus program, which is a valid anti-malware / spyware program. It only appeared on my computer once I installed NOD32. A valid instance of this program is likely to be found in C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus

egui.exe is a process from ESET NOD32 Antivirus/ESET Smart Security. It's not a problem at all, and it's rather helpful.

IT slows down once i opens other programs
It takes up 99% of my cpu usage, i can barely do anything.
Sometimes, the process suddenly `egui.exe` loads CPU 97-99%, and from that moment this state lasts for hours! :-(

GUI process for Eset nod32 AV program, should be located in C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus, if located elsewhere it's probably malware masquerading as nod32
It is part of Eset antivirus,which is an excellent AV program I think u have to leave it alone. If it is firing too often you may need to adjust your EsetNod settings
