I checked two other posts with this similar error but they do not seem like mine, so am posting separately. I just noticed today that eset NOD32 was not running, I have it start up with Windows. I am running Win xp sp2 and I am on version 3.0.642.0 of eset NOD32, not the latest but still fairly recent. I am getting the above error when I try to start. Thanks for any help.
