I thought I would share a tip, that I have been using for a very long time. If you are a network administrator, you might not always be installing from the latest available download package from ESET. Therefore, after you install the package, you have to restart the computer. Then after NOD32 updates itself, you have to restart the computer again (if the update was a more than just a minor one). What I do is, I install NOD32. I then refuse to restart the computer, and I start the NOD32 kernel service either via the Services control panel, or "start -> run -> net start nod32krn". I then fire up the NOD32 control-centre, this tells you that it was unable to initialize the filesystem monitor (which we ignore), then I perform the latest update, and then restart the computer. It saves having to restart the computer twice.
