    I recently had to temporarily uninstall eset nod32, however the uninstall failed, and now the version that is still "installed" is not functional, and I cannot uninstall it, nor can I reinstall nor repair. I need to get this program operational. Any help with this would be appreciated.

    Are you using Vista?

    If so, you could reboot to safe mode (without networking) and try start > all programs > eset

    and uninstall from there.

    If this isn't possible, you could try downloading and installing the same version and then uninstalling as per the link below.

    (Re. the instructions in link and cleaning the registry - I would remove the Eset entries under Local machine > Software AND Current User > Software)
