"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

Did it look something like this:

 Object cannot be opened. It may be in use by another application or operating system.
If so, the "unable to open" messages are from files which are opened by the operating system's kernel (or another program running with the kernel in its region of memory, like a device driver for a video card) and held open exclusively by that program and cannot be accessed by other programs. Usually, this isn't much of a big deal, because if the files are held open exclusively they cannot be touched by other things, like viruses, worms, ransomware and other forms of malware.
I found an article in ESET's knowledgebase which goes into more detail about it here: https://support.eset.com/kb2155/ for an older version of ESET Smart Security, which said "error opening" as opposed to "unable to open" in the log files, but it is the same thing. The "unable to open" message is just meant to be friendlier by removing the word 'error' from the log entries.
At least, I think that is probably what is going on. You can probably contact ESET's technical support and they can give you an official, and more thorough, answer.
