how to remove the NOD32® security suite or antivirus application manually

An antivirus application has one main task in your computer; to protect your data against abuse or loss. Typically, the protection runs in real time and the application itself is not easy to remove. If you face this problem with NOD32® software you have three ways to uninstall it. First, the most common way is to use the uninstaller in the “Start > All Programs > ESET > Uninstall” location. If this solution fails you can download the ESET® NOD32® removal tool or remove the antivirus application manually, as described in the instructions below.

Manual NOD32 removal instructions:

  1. Restart your computer. After the BIOS initializes, press the “F8” button on your keyboard. From the available list of Windows® modes, select “Safe mode” and press the “enter” button.
  2. Go to “Start > Run”, type “regedit” and press the “Enter” button.
  3. Locate these register entries:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ESET
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ESET
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\egui

    Delete them one by one (right click on the entry and select “Delete”).
  4. After deleting these keys, restart your Windows® PC normally and NOD32® will be removed.
  5. Check if the “ESET” folder in your “Program files” has been removed, if not, you should delete it manually.
