Eset Nod32 what a nightmare to remove

I have 3 laptops on windows 7. There 1 laptop its stuck with this eset nod32 it a nightmare to get off.

I've tried CCleaner, Revo uninstaller it finds all sorts I even use the hunter to look at the icon near the clock but doesn't seem to remove it complete.

The icon near the clock keeps staying there monitoring crap.

It does not show in add remove programs or in the start menu sub folders either.

I can see the main file but it wont allow me to delete it says I you need system permission what a load of bull.

Hi again, Click on the above link, scroll down to ESET /kb2788/, and click on it, and then scroll down to

uninstall your existing ESET Product, and Windows 7 is listed there.

The eset nod32 removal tool doesn't list the program to be removed.

Just thinking what options are left now?

Hi again, When you click on the above link on the left, click on list of supported applications, then at

the bottom of the page click list of applications, and then it goes to another page, and I clicked list of

applications again, and it gives a full list including ESETNOD32.

Whats the best program and easy program to restore back to a earlier date.

This eset nod32 a complete nightmare nothing seems to be working in safe mode or uninstaller the time come to kill the dam thing once and for all. The laptop all basic nothing on there needs saving so a simple restore to get the laptop back to basics.

I don't have a restore cd for the dell m5010 laptop

AV products are often difficult to remove. There is a good reason for this.

In recent years malware of all forms has become very sophisticated. Malware authors are no longer just the part time hacker. They are very professional, highly motivated, and well funded. They know the popular AV products very well and would very much like to disable them if possible. As a result AV products must take what might seem extreme measures to defend themselves. This often has the unfortunate but unintended consequence of making them difficult to remove by users. Often special procedures or software must be used.
