    I've been using Nod32 for about 2 years (It came with my school laptop). Recently I've been getting this error:

    It comes up every once in a while I'm on my computer. I used to just deal with it before, but now I've decided its time to fix it.

    Any ideas?

    Well, to be completely honest I had a similar problem before, but I just reformatted my whole computer(I had to do it anyways, so it wasn't an issue.), but I'd like to avoid that this time around.

    Thanks for the fast reply! Unfortunately I was sleeping :(.
    Anyways, tossed the cd in and booted it, it successfully did tests 1-6, but it was going really slow on the extended tests (7-11), I eventually just stopped it at 7 since it was going really slowww, I'll run through it again when I have more time.
    Haven't seen the error in a while though..

    Any luck in later scans, because now I'm getting the same exact error message running WinXP SP3 w/ Nod32 v4.0.467.0

    The subsequent (and slower) memory scans use more advanced data patterns that are better at detecting intermittent memory failures from faulty ram. Its best to let a complete pass run with all the extended scans so you can be sure you aren't chasing a hardware issue.

    Go to run and execute the program 'eventvwr.msc'. Under the system event log, check and see if there are any red errors complaining disk problems or things of that sort.

    Doesn't look like it. There are a couple DHCP errors, but nothing related to memory or disk errors since I ran the tests. I think the problem may have solved itself.

    Its possible that your pagefile was located on sectors of the disk that were bad, and when parts of ekrn tried to page back in to ram the action failed and the hard disk automatically remapped the bad sectors. You would need something that can read SMART data off the hard drive to see that.

    ok, just got the computer back from my boss & she says that it has still been popping up with the same error since I gave it back to her. I looked in the event viewer & aside from those dhcp errors, the only errors are from Control Manager stating that "The ESET Service terminated unexpectedly... Reset the service."
    Any more suggestions?
