I am getting a red star by my flag on status bar, that says I have message, message says I have no AV, ESET looks fine. Support said I could just turn off message?

To manually do what the KB article instructs:

  • Press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run box.
  • Type in services.msc, then press Enter
  • Scroll down and select 'Windows Management Interface', then Stop the service.
  • Navigate to "C:\Windows\System32\wbem\repository"
  • Rename the repository directory to repository.old
  • Reboot Windows.

This did not work any better, could not find phrase ,windows management interface in third step. ESet is a great product, when it is working, but when something goes wrong, it is too much trouble. Why isn't there more customer support, This is not a FREE product,I'm paying for it. I spent 2 hours messing with this thing tonight and I feel frustrated.

I've attached a batch file to do the job. Just unzip it and right click 'Run as Administrator'.

I'll include the code below for anyone's perusal.

@echo off
for /F "tokens=1,2*" %%x in ('bcdedit') do set adminTest=%%x
if (%adminTest%)==(Access) goto not_admin

NET STOP WINMGMT /Y
REN %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\WBEM\REPOSITORY REPOSITORY.OLD
echo.
echo Reboot the PC to complete the process
echo.
echo Press any key to exit.
pause>nul
goto finish

:not_admin
echo You must run this file as administrator!
echo.
echo Press any key to exit.
pause>nul

:finish

Well, thanks to 3 eset techs and and about 2 and 1/2 hours stretched over 8 hours, windows recognizes the  Eset AV again.

You can mark that off the bucket list. They went thru the stuff listed here, a Microsoft hotfix. and finally, the good tech, did a uninstall, then a reinstall. His hands were flying over the keyboard.
