    Can anybody tell me why Nod32 is repeatedly (over the course of a week or more) giving this error on somebody's computer & what can be done to stop it:

    1/30/2008 6:27:55 AM - During execution of EMON - Microsoft Outlook email monitor on the computer USERNAME, the following warning occured: Attempt to read configuration (1) failed.

    That is sometimes caused by improper permissions for the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Eset registry key\subkeys, in particular the EMON key. Assure that the currently logged on user has read permission and local system account full access granted.

    Can you explain why would this suddenly change? It's been running fine for a couple of years and then for no explicable reason the permissions are changed.
    Does anybody know what causes things like that to happen?
