[FIXED] ESET broke after update


Dahh

Recommended Posts

ESET was working fine, well until today's program update. The installation encountered some problems that I however forgot to screenshot so I just let it continue.

Restarted, doesn't start so i tried to uninstall it using the uninstaller+safe mode on the site.

After reinstalling and reactivation of the license, it worked normally.

Well after I restarted it broke again, neither egui nor ekrn runs.

When I try to open (even with admin privs) the egui.exe, it autocloses for some reason bearing the 'suspended' on the task manager details before disappearing.

If it's a virus then shouldn't NOD32 detect it? This whole thing happened AFTER I update the program.

System OS: Windows 10

Not sure what version of ESET you had installed before the upgrade but I'd suggest uninstalling it completely, removing ESET in safe mode using the uninstall tool as per http://support.eset.com/kb2289 (may not be needed) and installing the latest v10.1 from scratch by downloading Live installer from www.eset.com and running it.

Yes that's what I did, same procedure. I hope this image helps

I'll try reinstalling it again with safe mode for now
 

edit: suddenly not enough privileges despite being the "Administrator", gonna do the safemode one instead

Done uninstalling (safe mode) and reinstalling (admin privilege)


gonna restart now and check if it works, since this is the part where it was stuck

Update: still the same, restarting the laptop breaks it.

Manually starting egui.exe, shows up on task manager in a sec then gone

ekrn.exe starts, stays for like 30 seconds before being gone too

I shouldn't have update, this is giving me headaches

I'll be waiting for your response since you're offline now, please keep in touch later

It could be caused by a 3rd party tool or possibly by malware. Please generate a Procmon boot log and also collect ELC logs as per the instructions linked in my signature. When done, compress the Procmon log(s), upload the archive together with ELC logs to a safe location and pm me download links.

Try scanning with MalwareBytes first before re-installing. If it is malware then this should pick it up.

I have check disks for errors and found nothing. Then I uninstalled Comodo Firewall 10

Next restart ESET ran like normal, it was indeed Comodo Firewall all the while.

 

I'm quite sure I set it as an "Allowed Application" under its own rulesets, I don' know why it prevents ESET on running at all.

It may have been intentional or not, well at least if someone else has this problem like me; this should serve as an one of the solutions.

Anyway thanks for the replies :D
