    A little tip. Don't know if will help others or not.

    I've installed several betas of Eset Smart Security at different times. The last couple of times I installed the beta, the program would not update past the 2353 definition update and yet it would give the update as current. o_O

    If you go to documents and settings, all users, application data (which is hidden by the way and you will have to set your computer to view hidden files), you will find an Eset folder.

    I uninstalled Eset Smart Security, went to documents and settings and deleted the entire Eset folder. I then reinstalled the program.

    The program now works in all phases.

    I probably had a little corruption from the multiple installs. :D How large is your Eset folder in Documents and settings?

    The point I am trying to make here is, uninstalling Eset Smart Security doesn't remove all the leftovers from previous installs.
    The Eset folder in Program files will be empty, but all the files (including installers) will still be in documents and settings folder. :)

    Well, no problems...meaning our difference is that you manually cleaned away msi.1a...
