    Hello!

    The first thing you should try is reinstall the application:

    1. Download fresh new Eset v3 product from http://www.eset.com/download .
    Make sure that you choose the correct version.
    2. Uninstall your current version from Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs
    3. Reboot the computer when prompted
    4. Delete manually these folders (for XP):

    - C:\Documents and Settings\All users\Application data\Eset
    - C:\Documents and Settings\your user\Application data\Eset
    - C:\Documents and Settings\your user\Local Settings\Application data\Eset

    5. Reinstall your ESET Smart Security with the file you just downloaded . Use typical install.

    Reinstall always works for most programs but immo its the latest solution.

    No problems with ESS now or before. You need to do a clean install as mentioned above.

    It may not be ESET team who is guilty for this problem - it may well be related to something else.

    If you don't want to do something so simply , you are at risk because at least the anti-malware protections are not working

    I did what u said, uninstall, clean, install and today I had again BSOD but ESS is working without problems after restarting PC.

    BSOD:
    Windows XP Kernel Version 2600 (Service Pack 2) UP Free x86 compatible
    Product: WinNt, suite: TerminalServer SingleUserTS
    Kernel base = 0x804d7000 PsLoadedModuleList = 0x805535a0

    Probably caused by : eamon.sys ( eamon+2d79 )
    Info from dump files.

    In order to get the BSOD fixed , you should report it to ESET (with full memory dump) .

    Here is how to created full memory dump:

    Contact ESET Technical support for more information how to upload the dump files on their server => open ESS's GUI -> Help -> Contact Customer care
