Shortly after booting up and after the desktop appears my PC occasionaly freezes along with the timer icon. I have to force restart a couple of times before the pc becomes usable.
Also had this listed in Event Viewer:
The ESET Service service hung on starting
I've ran chkdsk along with other 3rd party HD drive checks
Tried system restore
Run virus/malware scans - nothing
Can't see any exclamations in device manager
The computer will always boot up in safe mode with no trouble at all
I have uninstalled & reinstalled NOD with a thorough clean of its components in between.
In safe mode: disabled the Eset service in Windows' service manager
Uninstalled Nod using the Nods uninstaller
Tried to find and delete Nod's ehdrv driver using device manager - it wasn’t there
Uninstalled the pc worked fine, reinstalled again and the problem returns.
I hope someone can help me with resolving this issue
