Re: Unistall NOD32 from ePO 4.5

the version I am trying to uninstall is NOD32 version 2.70.32

My main issue is that in HKLM\software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall I cannot find the GUID for nod32 installation but only a key called NOD32, whitin this key there is an "uninstallString" with value "C:\Program Files\Eset\Setup\Setup.exe /uninstall" but even adding this exe from design installer to run after VSE installation , VSE is installed correctly but NOD32 is not uninstalled..

Many thanks for your interest!

Re: Unistall NOD32 from ePO 4.5

Have you tried looking in the ESET KB or posting on the forums there?

I found this-

I know it says boot in safe mode- but maybe if you search/ post in their forums you are more likely to find the answers you are looking for.

Someone else will have ran into the same issues previously no doubt.



Re: Unistall NOD32 from ePO 4.5

Well I try to find some answers last year and no luck so I make a bat file, then zip it and make a self executable with Winrar and put it in VSe package with MIDin the package I put nkill also

You can find nkill.exe in the web.

Here a example of my bach (take care test on VM first)  I just want to help dont hate me if not work

I kill 250 NOD32 version 2.5 and 2.7 with this baby the second part 100 AVIRA (not posted)

@echo off

cd "%programfiles%\eset"
nkill /d /f

REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ /v nod32kui /F
REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\NOD32 Context Menu Shell Extension" /F
REG DELETE HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AMON /F
REG DELETE HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NOD32krn /F

Thanks a million for your help!!

Re: Unistall NOD32 from ePO 4.5

Have you try my solution?

You must modify uninst.ini with string i have posted above. You must modify NOD32 GUID and release value. With NOD32 3 and 4 release, automatically uninstallation work fine!

Try it and let me know

Re: Unistall NOD32 from ePO 4.5


as my version of NOD32 isn't the newest...I don't have the installation GUID in the I had to use a batch file for uninstallation and customize the package from MID as suggested from HermanSchenk.

Thank a lot anyway for your precious inputs!
