    I have updated to Eset Smart Security 3.0.650 & I would like to go back to Eset Anti Virus 3.0.650. Can anyone guide me to a fool-proof way to uninstall ESS & re-install EAV? I have some unresolved issues on another PC where I was upgrading to ESS from EAV, but which has not allowed me to completely unistall EAV to install ESS. I have been VERY happy with EAV, & looking back, I wished I had never decided to upgrade.
    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    simply uninstall ess and wait 10min to uninstaller complete it's job after that restart your OS
    and delete these registry key's
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ESET
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ESET
    now install eav and enjoy

    Thankyou.
    Everything has worked out well. The uninstaller can be a bit unnerving when the progress bar during the uninstall process appears to stall as if nothing is happening. Thanks for pointing out 'wait 10 minutes for the uninstaller to complete it's job'. Otherwise I may have thought the uninstaller had frozen!
