    Why is there no uninstall application in the Eset folder? The process always looks for the original installation application to complete the uninstall. If the original installation application can't be found, I get message,"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable."
    I will submit a ticket to Eset for this.

    There's an uninstall application named 'unins000.exe' in the 'ESET NOD32 Antivirus' folder which resides in the 'ESET' folder of 'Program files.' Obviously, here I'm referring to the EAV and not the ESS. :thumb:

    Hey... right click on Start > Programs > ESET > EAV > Uninstall and you see:
    "path-to-ESET-folder/callmsi.exe" /x {6953CFE0-74E6-4DE2-869E-D9ADFB2DC55F}"

    I see it. Callmsi is an MSI Launcher. Not sure what this launches.

    Can you upload a screenshot of what you see in your 'ESET NOD32 Antivirus' folder?

    Unfortunately, only one of your screenshots has made it here. It's a relief that all files shown in the upper half of your screenshot are perfectly in order.

    BTW, just out of curiosity - is your system a Client on a corporate network?

    I'm sorry, I still don't see the file.

    Thankful,

    FWIW, I don't have that unins000.exe file anywhere in my ESET folder either (the files in your screenshot pretty much match what I have in my ESET NOD32 Antivirus folder).

    I noticed xTiNcTion's post and that's basically what I'm seeing; there is a reference to that in my Windows\Installer folder.

    Thankful, my Nod32 folder is almost identical to yours. There is no uninstall in it. However, under program files, Eset-Nod32, there is an option to uninstall.
