    Default eset/ekrn.exe removal

    I made the mistake of trying eset's trial edition. Now there is a file/folder I cannot erase/quarantine. The result is I continue to get popups from eset and them trying to block certain sites. How can I finally kill it? p.s. I found SPYBOT quite by accident and I am truly impressed and intend to purchase the advanced edition. I also run "UnHackMe" to which I have a lifetime license. It has always rescued me and continues to do so. But even with their startup Partizan I still cannot kill the eset bug. Any suggestions?

    Default eset/ekrn.exe removal

    I used eset-anti-malware/virus protection on another pc and was pleased with the product. I also d/l'ed a trial version on a new pc but now I cannot delete this ekrn.exe file they have implanted. It interferes continually now and forces me to approve or wait while a site is white-listed by them. I also run "UnHackMe" on this pc which is a wonderful rootkit remover. I found SPYBOT quite by accident, ran it, but still no success exterminating this ekrn.exe file implanted by eset. Any suggestions?

    Hello PhilM,

    Please post your issue in the Eset forums, there are several topics there regarding NOD32 Antivirus ekrn.exe
