    Every time nod32 gets to certain point in my user account folder (windows 7) while doing a smart scan it stops responding. Other virus scans(malwarebytes) that get to this point stop responding also but then skip it and move on. I did a scan yesterday and it was fine, but today i had to reinstall nod32 because it was having some issue installing a driver(eset personal firewall miniport adapter).

    For how long did you wait? If the scanner is set to scan inside archives and you have, for instance, a lot of large ISO files on the disk it may take hours to unpack gigabytes of data to the disk and subsequently scan all the files.

    I get a message from windows saying that eset smart security has stopped responding. I watched the scan a few times and it goes to 0% from 92% completed and stays like that.
