So today I renewed my license for ESS as it ran out many weeks ago and I was running the last beta build (best build ever TBH) so this extended my time. I was waiting till my beta ran out and to read about any issues here with the latest final build and TBH until the fixes of the last great beta build I was done forever with ESET. I seen some have issues with printers etc so I thought that's fine and I installed it. On reboot my Sidebar Gadgets were all messed up in wrong order etc. OK I know the Vista sidebar can from time to time mess up and I know how to un-register then re-register it and fix it and how to optimise it. None of the fixes worked and every reboot it was messed up. I did some reading and seen Avast can do this so I assume since its a AV so could other AV's. Now ESS ain't the easiest thing to totally disable so I disabled what I could using "MSCONFIG" and rebooted to Safe Mode and renamed the "ekrn.exe" to ".ekrn.exeOLD" (cannot do in normal mode as its locked. I then booted to Windows normally and without any messing about my Sidebar was 100 perfect, it fixed itself ! I rebooted a dozen times and it was perfect every time. Renamed ESS doing reverse of above and it messed up again. Now I previously paid for a 2 year license and basically beta tested all the buggy 3.X builds before they finally got good and the same for the disaster than was 4.X builds before the very recent fixes mainly in the last beta build. Today I have renewed my license for another 2 years and this new build is more bugged than any previous (well apart from the Http/Web protection slowness issue of past builds). I know for a fact it is not my PC, I cannot fix the Sidebar if ESS is running, it fixes itself if ESS is not running. Now the only option I have for now is to try find a link to download the last beta build which is the best build in a long time.
