    Hey tommy456

    Try to take a peek on this link, maybe you can pull out some information from this thread that you can try out : Eset Gui constantly crashes

    Take care, Janus

    The EGUI.EXE has always been a little buggy, in V5 and earlier versions of V6 but if it did occasionally crash it would restart again automatically straight away, this latest issue it was crashing frequently for no apparent reason, and failed to restart by it's self,
    In the end i uninstalled eset and also ran the manual uninstaller in safe mode, as windows was still reporting that eset may need updating , so it had not completely uninstalled,
    But since i re installed eset no crashes so far
