    NOD32 has been running happily on my main computer for some time, but yesterday I noticed that it was not running. It seems a virus has got through into my system! I have tried repairing the NOD32 installation, and delting and reinstalling, but the install program fails when 'starting services'. The computer is running XP. I have also discovered that regidit no longer works either. I have to say that I am not very impressed there is something out there that has been able to disable NOD32, but is there a solution to get bit running again?

    It is possible that malware has compromised NOD32.
    That's is why NOD32 v4 has new self protection features.

    There will always be "something out there that is able to disable NOD32", or any other product for the matter.

    You yourself, for example, by deinstalling it.

    Use your computer as it was meant to be used - thru a standard user account.

    There is no one software that can protect you or me from what is out there. Above all you need common sense. With all said, the imperative is to get rid of malware now on your machine so visit one of the sites mentioned at the bottom of the post
