    Windows crashed earlier today and after the reboot this happened:

    I've reinstalled 5 times. Cleaned all registry keys that had "eset" in it. Nothing.

    Any suggestions?

    Try install ESS to another folder on your HDD.

    @ Meister

    If your Windows crashed earlier this day , try to first use System Restore to restore to previous state .
    Open Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore
    Choose to restore to a date/state before the crash happened . Follow the instructions . Your computer reboot .

    After you have done your System Restore and after you have got back to previous state ,your ESS might be corrupted . So, run the ESS installer and it will offer you to either Repair or Uninstall ESS . You choose to uninstall/remove ESS !

    After reboot , you can reinstall it following this procedure:

    1. Download fresh new ESS from http://download1.eset.com/special/essbeta1b/ess_nt32_enu.msi
    2. Delete manually
    - C:\Program files\ESET
    - C:\Documents and Settings\All users\Application data\Eset

    3. Install again ESS beta . Use Typical install and keep essbeta for username/password


    Should you still have problems with it , ensure you have some firewall turned ON (such as Windows Firewall) and then contact Eset beta support , mail to betasupport[at]eset.sk

    Thank you for your replies.

    RwR: Actually I had already tried that in my attempts :)

    HiTech_boy: I don't have system restore activated but I never deleted the folder in "Application Data" (didn't know it was there but I checked and it is). I will delete the folder and attempt another reinstall as soon as possible.
