Hi, I was adding some partitions and folders to the exclusion list in NOD V3.0.563 when the whole system froze. It remained unresponsive and I had to do a reset. When the PC rebooted it would be fine for 20-30 seconds before freezing up again. In the event viewer, applications, there was an error message for ekrn.exe I tried to uninstall NOD but the uninstaller kept popping up an error message and the upshot was I couldn't uninstall NOD. I tried the uninstaller in the NOD folder in programs and that didn't work either. Couldn't do it in safe mode either. How can I uninstall NOD? XP Home with the following security applications running:- Comodo V2.4 firewall Threatfire Thanks.
