I've been running ESS Beta2 on 2 of my machines with no problems. I recently uninstalled ESS Beta1a from my mother-in-law's machine. I installed ESS Beta2 which completed successfully. Upon starting the system tray icon turns red and the following messages appear in the log: Kernel Error initializing file submission system. Kernel Virus scanner initialization failed. Most of Eset Smart Security modules will not function properly. Although I can apparently download updates, the Version of Virus Signature Database field is blank on the Update window and when I mouse over the system tray icon the database info reads as: %ScannerVersion% I've uninstalled and reinstalled and it occurred after reinstalling.
