Many people complained that it is very difficult to remove Eset Smart Security completely thru the Windows Add/Remove programs: no matter what they tried, Eset Smart Security could not be uninstalled, and while trying to overwrite the program with the reinstalled one, they kept coming across permission denied error every time. If you also have this problem, don't worry, the steps below will tell you how to remove Eset Smart Security and NOD32 completely:


Manual Eset Smart Security removal:


Remove Eset Smart Security method one:


Step 1. Click Start - All Programs - ESET - Uninstall.
Step 2 Restart your computer after you uninstall ESET.

Step 4. Click Start - My Computer, and then locate and delete the folders below:

C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataESET
C:Documents and Settings%USER%Application DataESET


If you use a Windows Vista and Windows 7 computer, delete the folders below:

Usually, this uninstaller can remove the folders above. Check Show hidden files and folders, if you can not find these folders there, it means that this removal is complete.


Remove Eset Smart Security method two:

Step 2. Make sure the ESET service or any related services are disabled by the following instructions, otherwise you are unable to continue the next steps.

Stop all the ESET related services, there are probably two such services with the name ESET Service and ESET Http Server.


Go into Command prompt, input sc delete ekrn, and then input sc delete EhttpSrv


Step 3. Go to C:Program Files and delete the ESET folder. Do not delete the wrong folder if you also have other ESET products on your computer. Change the drive letter to the drive where Windows is installed.


Step 4. Start - Run, and type Regedit. In the Registry Editor, locate HK_LOCAL_MACHINESoftware and then delete the entire ESET key. Click Yes when a prompt shows.
