    On a fully patched Win XP Pro SP2 system, downloaded and installed the Update for Windows XP (KB943198)(Brief Description:This update improves the Windows USB driver performance on a system running Windows XP) from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...3b44-4d2e-9640-e0d21818763e&displaylang=en&tm .

    After restarting the PC, Nod32 (version 3.0.642) had completely disappeared leaving no trace, somehow had been un-installed, I had to re-instal.

    Anyone any ideas ? (besides MS remarks!!)

    Thank you

    did you check services, or is it completly gone?
    start > run > then services.msc and enter

    there should be a "Eset Service" and it should say Started and Automatic

    I just installed this update on two machines and can't repeat the behaviour. How strange. Thanks for the link to the update, sorry I can't be of more help. :eek:

    Just thought I would chime in with a possibility that occurred to me.

    Since this happened upon the reboot following an update, I have to wonder if you might be seeing the result of a system restore. If the update (or something else) caused a serious enough issue with your registry, there's a possibility that the system reverted to a System Restore point prior to the installation of NOD32.

    If this is what happened, then I would also expect that, if you look for them in Add/Remove Programs, you won't find either the update or NOD32.

    Just thought I'd toss out the idea.

    I haven't installed in on the work PCs running NOD32 yet. I may wait a bit. I installed it on my home PC running AVG Free with no issues, or so I thought. I did notice this morning when I opened Money 2003 to balance my checkbook that when I type a payee entry my list of previous entries has been shortened to only about 10 payees and no new ones are remembered. If I keep typing though the entry will auto insert, it just doesn't appear in the drop down list anymore. This update has to have some issues with it.
