    Hi everyone,

    I've just had a rather disturbing event transpire that's never happened at all: My entire system (Running Windows 7 x64) completely hard-locked on me for several moments. Eventually I regained control, but investigating my system logs and looking at ESET revealed that NOD had crashed horribly, and restarted itself.

    I've never had NOD crash on me before, though I admit that in the last three weeks I've upgraded from an earlier version of 4.X to

    Is this indicative of my being infected with anything? Did something kill NOD so it could play nasty games? I was running Opera at the time, but it was operating inside Sandboxie.

    My NOD information is as follows:

    Virus signature database: 5758 (20110104)
    Update module: 1031 (20091029)
    Antivirus and antispyware scanner module: 1293 (20101110)
    Advanced heuristics module: 1115 (20101116)
    Archive support module: 1123 (20101108)
    Cleaner module: 1050 (20101207)
    Anti-Stealth support module: 1023 (20101125)
    SysInspector module: 1217 (20100907)
    Self-defense support module : 1018 (20100812)
    Real-time file system protection module: 1004 (20100727)
    In the event viewer, during the crashes, I see:

    Faulting application name: ekrn.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x4cd2d774
    Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16559, time stamp: 0x4ba9b29c

    Any help with this would be appreciated. I'm not sure if this is something seriously wrong, and I need to panic about infection, or if it's just a fluke, and everything is OK. Thanks.
