    I started to have problems getting the Eset service to start when I turned on the pc, I decided to uninstall the ESS application and start again.

    When I downloaded and ran a fresh install file it get to the point of trying to start the service and failing with the message below.

    Service 'Eset service' (ekrn) failed to start. Verifly that you have sufficent privledges to start.

    I've checked the service and tried using a admin account instead of the 'system default' but get the same message.

    I have looked through the installESS.log file and found the following entries.

    Property(S): ProductToBeRegistered = 1

    Any ideas on other things to try?

    66 views and no answers or pointers, is this not the official support forum for Eset?

    Have you tried the following?:

    -Unistall ESS
    -Clean the cache of yor PC
    -Manualy verify that all the registry entries have been deleted
    -Download the last RC of ESS
    -Install it

    If this doesn´t work, you should send a "Look In My PC" and "Belarc" report, because it is probable that somithing on your PC is having conflicts with ESS.

    I hope you find this info usefull

    Best Regards

    Had already ran the on-line scan, nothing found.

    re-installed SP2, ran a Windows repair from the cd and am now in the process of backing everything up for a clean install just to get ESS to work in preperation for the proper release.
