    As of today, the ESET service is disabled when I boot into Windows7, and none of the recommended remedies works... I get "access denied" when I try to change its status to either Automatic or Manual. Already downloaded and installed the MS Net framework update.

    I can't start ESET.

    I'm suspecting that some Trojan got by ESET recently, and that it's wiped out my ability to run ESET.
    Is this happening to anyone else?
