    What OS do you use? If you use Windows Vista or Windows 7 that you need to click on "Show processes from all users" button. Or, as an variant, some type of malware killed 'ekrn' service.

    Are you having issue´s with NOD32? ie. a red warning in NOD32 GUI, does scan work?

    Have you checked 'Show all running processes from all user's' in Task Manager? (bottom left)
