    If you're really unlucky you'll have to edit the registry fully. Just doing what listed in the kb article isn't always enough.
    I had to delete every reference in the registry after ver 3 refused to come off.
    A Utility like the one that Symantec have got would be useful. Save thirty minutes or more of editing the registry and changing permissions.

    I had trouble with a partial uninstall until I manually set the eset service to disabled and rebooted. The eset service wouldn't disable though until I did the manual uninstall and rebooted.
