"Most of the ESET NOD32 Antivirus modules will not function properly". ++++++++++ I hope someone can kindly help? I keep getting this error message on boot up. Here's what's happened: Yesterday, Windows 7 told me of 4 updates it needed to install, so I installed them and rebooted. On reboot, Windows uninstalled them and gave me an error code in the install history. It turned out the updates could not be applied because some files were already in use. The only way I managed to fix this was to temporarily disable the Eset service ekrn.exe. Then I was able to do the Windows 7 update successfully. So I then went into Services Manager to set Eset Service to Automatic again, but it would not let me with a "Access Denied" message. So I tried repairing NOD32. That didn't fix it. So I uninstalled and resintalled. Now I am in the position described above. Every time I boot up, NOD32 comes up in orange (not green) and says ""Virus scanner initialization has failed. Most of the ESET NOD32 Antivirus modules will not function properly". Has anyone any idea how to fix this? I have tried uninstalling manually and deleting all the appropriate folders and removing the ehdrv driver manually too. But it doesn't fix it. I am reluctant to run the ESETuninstaller.exe in case it makes things even worse!
