    I would try an uninstall/reinstall.

    No, i don't see a item (NOD32)

    Maybe Ad-aware / Awatch?

    Is NOD showing in the add/remove section of control panel?

    You could uninstall, and do an advanced install, checking the items as you go.

    If you can't install NOD, there is some other problem or conflict.

    Make sure you have no other antivirus running when trying to install.

    Ad-aware / Awatch alerts you to unanounced changes to your startup among other things. If it were set to 'automatic' mode it will block changes without asking first. I would definately be looking in that with a view to making adwatch inactive while you do your install.
    Hope that helps.

    Did you come from Windows 98?

    You are installing the latest version of Nod32 for XP, that being 2.12.3

    You could try uninstalling Nod32.

    Delete the Eset folder from C Drive> Program Files

    Run a registry cleaner.

    Install a FRESH copy of Nod32

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go.

    Cheers :D

    I've followed your instructions, but it seems like there is no result.
    My O/S Windows XP Pro.

    Did you follow NOD32 user's suggestion about Ad-watch? I only say this because when a friend of mine installed AVG with Ad-watch running, it wouldn't start up properly either.

    In the end, we uninstalled AVG, deleted the AVG folder in the Program Files, completely disabled Ad-watch, rebooted and then reinstalled AVG. We then made sure that when we re-enabled that it didn't block AVG. This solved the problem. Just make sure Automatic blocking in Ad-watch is not enabled when you do this, like NOD32 user says.

    just a thought... NOD32 protected against potentially fatal viruses (to your PC) - Ad-watch handles annoying, but harmless ads (right?) - I would lose ad-watch. Anything that gets in the way of your PRIMARY protection is surplus to requirements in my book...

    Well, I'm glad someone with more authority (i.e. posts) on this board said it.

    I thought Ad-watch was pretty awful really (although Ad-aware is great) and certainly not worth paying extra for, esp. when you consider stuff like SpywareBlaster/Guard and the immunize function on Spybot are free and don't (albeit unintentionally) get in the way of your AV software.

    Adwatch commonly needs to be disabled (set to manual so you can approve changes instead of just having them blocked) to install pretty much anything with a startup entry - but thats only because it's doing its job and like everything else I've tested, once NOD is installed there's zero interference.
    Adwatch has saved me a few times too many for me to part with it....but you do what you will :)
    And thats one of the two best features of Adwatch realtime process scanning and nothing gets into your startup list without you hearing about it first

    Fair enough. I wasn't impressed by it, but each to their own.

    Anyway, let's hope that it helps out with Peter's problem. :)
