    Hi everyone,

    After having a new power supply installed at shop, the tech, without my permission tuned up Windows including removing Nod from startup folder, began receiving Error Communicating with Kernel.

    Went to the fix at ESET's site here: http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?pag...earch&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=1316960802677. After restart, still received the error. Reading the page further it said "Your computer may be infected with Win32/IRCBot.ANR" and gave me a link to download and run to clean the virus.

    Ran the program, restarted computer and now Nod is disabled stating "many of Nod's modules will not function properly." with no option to enable it.

    Can any one help meo_O
    Thanks,
    Tatezi

    Thanks for gettng back to me.

    I ran the malware cleaner that was linked on the same page as the fix for the possible malware twice. It never told me if it had resolved the problem...just gave me a quick flash of the DOS window. How do I know if the potential malware was removed?

    Downloaded the newer version of Nod32 to install once I'm sure the malware is gone and I uninstall the existing version. Just would like to know how I can be sure the malware was removed?

    Appreciate your help!

    Thanks for all your help. Was able to uninstall using the Windows Uninstall Cleaner and got v5 installed and all is working fine now.

    Appreciate your help and the malware links you provided.
