    I had a problem with the ESET that cause me to uninstall it as "Cudni" suggest..
    I had uninstall it carefully with removing the whole files and folders..
    any way.. when i tried to install it again "using this steps" it stops after the third step at 91% with this error message:

    Did you look in your device manager for left overs? I used to get halfway through an installation just to have it stop and tell me the application was already on my machine. Well, i found this little tutorial at PC Tools that put an end to that nonsense. :argh:

    How to Display Hidden Devices Drivers

    I have found that many deleted programs, especially anti-malware programs leave drivers behind that can conflict with all kinds of current programs and slows the boot as well. I have found many that impacted Spyware Doctor.

    Before you do the following procedure, check the Services to make sure no old deleted services are still active. Many software utilities do a very bad job of uninstalling.

    In order to show hidden devices:

    1. Right click My Computer and Select Properties
    2. Click Advanced tab
    3. Click Environment Variables
    4. Below the bottom Environment Variables window pane (System Variables), click New
    5. For Variable Name, enter devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices
    6. For Variable Value enter 1
    7. Click OK. OK to close My Computer

    Now open Device Manager, click on View, select show hidden devices from the menu. Most of the orphans will be in non-plug and play drivers and the icons will appear grayed out. You can right click the grayed out driver and click uninstall.

    If you do not know what the driver is, bing it prior to deletion so you undertand what you are deleting.

    I hope this helps someone with performance problems.

    Note: I have also found that some old deleted programs leave behind drivers that are still active (not grayed out). The best solution is to disable them, re-boot and then go back and delete them.



    Now i just go to start right click on my computer click properties click hardware click device manager click view click show hidden devices and presto you'll see those trouble starters just sitting there taking up space..:shifty:

    Hope this helps..

    Moved message thread from NOD32 v2 forum to ESET NOD32 Antivirus as it discussed an issue with ESET NOD32 Antivirus v5.0.

    Hello,

    Is this issue still occurring, or were you able to resolve it?
