    When I try tu uninstall eset, this comes up:

    A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file:
    c:\windows\installer\eav_nt32_enu.msi

    What do I do?

    Now something else has happened.

    I came home (the computer was on) and all the sudden I heard it turn it self of... I think There was some updates that did it....

    Anyway...

    I have tryed downloading Revo uninnstaller, but I got the same thing up.

    Now after the "re-start" I cant find Eset on the list of programs that I can remove,,, But if I go in the start menu, I find it and It is operative(I can open this program) (excuse my english im Norwegian).

    But when I try remove it with the uninstall button that lyes with it, I get a message that I can not uninnstall because it is not innstalled? WHAT?

    I am not good at these type of things on the computer... I dont know what to do...

    The reason I wanted to remove Eset was because my x-boyfriend innstalled it and suddenly now I had to update with password I have never gotten. So I have gone months without updatet protection. (But now I have scanned with AVG)

    I installed AVG (because I have used this before)....

    Are you using Vista?

    If so, you could reboot to safe mode (without networking) and try start > all programs > eset

    and uninstall from there.

    If this isn't possible, you could try downloading and installing the same version and then uninstalling as per the link below.

    Incidentally, next time I would completely remove an AV before installing another.

    (Re. the instructions in link and cleaning the registry - I would remove the Eset entries under Local machine > Software AND Current User > Software)
