Check whether the Eset Folder is still in Program Files including the fix, delete it if it is there. Use a registry cleaner to clean your registry again and then reboot. It had happen to me once, did some cleaning up before the next version is willing to installed.

I recommend u use the nod removal tool (google search) to get rid of left over garbage and like said above hack the registry for the fixes that had no uninstallers. Personnaly I do not upgrade to every new version of nod that comes out (really don't see a sense in it).

By the way I have used the removal tool several times; but the left over garbage from regular uninstall is why I don't do upgrades unless major changes.

I've recently become a fan of a program called "Your Uninstaller" (available in the apps section of this site). When you use it to uninstall a program, it first uses the programs uninstaller and lets that run, then it inspects the registry and other folders and files and removes anything stil left over by the regular program uninstaller. It really works well. I don't know how I got along for so long without it.

1) Download the latest version (NOD32 AntiVirus 3.0.669.0)

2) Go to 'Services' and disable 'ESET service'

3) If you possess any startup application, disable 'egui' from starting with Windows (I use Spy Sweeper) - or else, you can always use the 'msconfig' command prompt

4) Reboot

5) Ensure NOD32 is not running before uninstalling your current programme. BTW, I use Your Uninstaller! PRO.2008 6.1.1252 - it removes most of your unneeded registry entries (but not all)

a) Launch the search to manually delete all traces of ESET

6) Navigate to the registry through the command 'regedit'

7) Before manually deleting the following keys take a backup (remember some of them may not necessarily be present in your system and you're doing this at your own risk)

(i) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Eset

(ii) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Eset

(iii) HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Eset Smart Security - Context Menu Shell Extension

(iv) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{6953CFE0-74E6-4DE2-869E-D9ADFB2DC55F}

(v) HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{B089FE88-FB52-11D3-BDF1-0050DA34150D}

(vi) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\eamon

(vii) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\easdrv

(viii) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\epfwtdir

(ix) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ekrn

(x) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EhttpSrv

(xi) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Now intsall your NOD32 AntiVirus 3.0.669.0 and let us know if this has worked for you.

Try This...

1. Download and run CC Cleaner (Just Google it to find the App)

I agree, I've used YU since the 2006 version; also revo uninstaller is an excellent program and free. (if u can't find serial for YU)

Yet another approach would be just booting into safe mode and using "Your Uninstaller" to uninstall the ESET app and then rebooting and doing a check of the registry with CCCleaner would probably effectively remove all traces of it, but I haven't personally tested this yet.
