Ive always found eset software to uninstall very cleanly and had no probs afterwards with remnants ala norton

 

 

+1 eset leaves a few things but nothing major, now AVG is another story, but your friend will be fine :)

Just run a regcleaner like:

Then download the trial of Regsupreme, run it (use normalmode only, not aggressive), when finished scanning you rightclick and select "All", then you click "Fix" at the bottom, it will ask you if you wish to make a backup and you do, just to be safe.

After you have deleted any remaining folders which you find with "Search" in Windows.

to completely remove ESS

 

XP:

- C:\Program files\ESET

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

- C:\Documents and Settings\~username~\Local Settings\Application data\Eset

 

Vista:

- C:\Program files\ESET

- C:\Program data\Eset

- C:\Users\~username~\AppData\Local\Eset

 

 

Delete the following registry keys.

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Eset

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Eset

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\egui (if its there)

yes ...100% clean this is an official tool from ESET

 

it is available originally from Dutch ESET distributor but works with all languages here is the link to dispel any reservations of the tool's authenticity

http://www.nod32.nl/download/tool/nod32removal.exe

 

by the way this tool works great and removes all traces of Nod32 ..the nice thing is that this is user friendly to all levels of computer expertise and is much better suited for the novice

Revo uninstaller .... great program. My favorite freeware app.

If you have a 64-bit OS, it won't work. Does work on 32-bit flavors of Vista, however.

Not always good for security suites though, it messes Kaspersky up. I would suggest following the steps posted with security products to be on the safe side if its a simple regedit like here, or if the AV/suite has its own removal tool use that first. Edited by Killhippie
