I lost count on how many I've seen. Norton and MSE PCs are just fine.
Here's my info on a NOD32 AV 126.96.36.199 and WU blue-screened PC:
Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit (all updates)
Virus signature database: 5356...
Not good for me either...188.8.131.52 blue-screened 2 of my fully updated Vista Home Premium 32-bit PCs. Norton systems update just fine.
Not good for me either...4.2.58 blue-screened 2 of my Vista Home Premium 32-bit PCs. Norton systems update just fine.
Turning off real time...

This update ( KB2286198 ) blue-screen crashed two fully updated Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2 computers, both running NOD32 version 184.108.40.206....
You will not lose any time.
Upgraded two Vista Home Premium 32-bit PCs from 4.0.474 with no problems.
Light as 2.7!
Great job ESET!
I had the same problem with an earlier version of 4 with Vista (on 2 pc's).
I have to run V3.
Try booting into the Safe Mode once, then restart with a normal boot.
I would not discount the fact that you may have malware preventing NOD from starting.
You may want to try a good checkup and cleaning if...
I still have V3 on two PC because V4 was causing hangs/freezing, and I don't expect, or want to troubleshoot a piece of software I paid for.
This is NOT good.
I had freezing problems (on two Vista Home Premium systems) with V4 and had to revert to V3.
I tried working with ESET by submitting the...
Installed 3.0694.0 over the top of 3.0.684.0 on two systems, one Vista Home Premium, and one Vista Home Basic (32 bit) with no problems.
If you need help, there are some great, talented folks here...just follow the rules there.
Possible malware (?)

Is ESET NOD32 Antivirus 3.0.684 compatible with Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2?
If you search, others have reported the exact same symptom you describe.
Remember, you can always use version 3 until v4 matures a little more.
...and your NOD32 type (AV or SS) and version?
