ok so in order to install nod32 v 4 32bit on win xp i had to uninstall windows security essentials. so i did that and then things started to from bad to worse than bad. but eset managed to install. the problem is that i cant see the window that eset pops up in. i right clicked the tray icon to run a scan and after some waiting the scan window unexpectedly appeared. i checked some boxes from the list of places to scan and ran a scan. it is important to note that when checking these boxes there were lots of problems where some of the folders would replace other folders and not able to be seen when scrolling up and down the list of folders. this seems to run in coordination with the general 'cant see the eset program window' problem. the scan appears to be taking place though. my google chrome will open and then immediately do this 'aw snap' thing and right now im using internet explorer. the tops of the windows does not show. like the blue part with the minimize and 'x out' buttons does not show for any of my folders that are up. as i am typing this more problems happened, the scan just finished. it brought up this red window that said there are threats or something. but i cant select any options in the window. it is default set to 'dont do anything about it' for the one threat i can see has been detected. (the whole box is pretty much blank though with some delineation of color) so its pretty screwed up and its really stopping the functionality of the whole machine. something is really really messed up here. theres another problem. this is a work computer. and i am doing work right now. and this stuff needs to get done tonight.
