I am almost positive that the Microsoft Windows Updates eariler today have made my NOD32 cease to funtion I've had NOD32 installed for about 6 months and have never had a problem until today when I installed Windows updates and rebooted. NOD32 is not in my system tray nor will the control panel launch from start menu or ESET Program Files folder.I've looked in the registry and "C:\Program Files\Eset\nod32kui.exe" /WAITSERVICE is there. I do have the installation .exe and my user information as to reinstall but would REALLY like to know what happened in the first place.This will drive me nuts until I get a reasonable explanation. BTW....No error messages at all........simply does not load I am far from an expert at understanding NOD32 and luckly, have never had a problem with it up until now. Laymans terms for help with will be greatly appreciated as I am a NOD32 n00b Thanks!!!
