Hi mogobjah

It looks like some issue with corrupted installation or missing modules.

At first check prerequisites which is GlibC:

- It is needed to have instaled glibc to run 32bit applications at 64bit os

yum install glibc.i686

- check if all modules are present, if some of them are missing it could be the issue.



Anyway if they are present some of them can be corrupted somehow and therefore:

- Login as root
- Stop esets service
- create backup folder
- Move em00*_32.dat files from /var/opt/eset/esets/lib to backup folder
- Run update all modules will be re-created again /opt/eset/esets/sbin/esets_update --verbose
- Check content of /var/opt/eset/esets/lib if all modules are present

Try to start service and check if issue is fixed or not.
