    I just Downloaded ESET smart security, didn't really work and so i uninstalled. When i try installing AVG now, it says cant because there is another antivirus installed. I checked windows security, says ESET firewall is up and running... I thought I just uninstalled it... Then i manually deleted all folders and files of ESET. TRied again, same problem... Is there like a remover or something that can permanantly remove this... By the way, i have Windows XP SP2, if that helps... I also followed the manually uninstall that is on the official ESET website. Still, doesn't work, anyone know why? Any help is greatly appreciated. I rebooted too, doesn't work.

    Did you also delete Eset registry entries under software in both HKEY local machine and current user?

    This does the trick for me.

    You could always check these steps here.

    I have seen others suggest running this (choosing only Eset).

    Yeah, like I said, i followed the manual uninstallation process given by ESET. I'm pretty sure this thing is thoroughly uninstalled, but Windows still reads it as my Anti-Virus. And I still can't install AVG because of it.
