    Open Internet Explorer> Tools> Manage Add-ons> look for Eset or Nod in the dialog box> highlight> Disable.

    Note: the dialog box has 2 sections: add-ons currently on system and add-ons previously on system. Look in both sections. The online scanners are Active X Objects found in the Add-ons.

    Give this a try- from Eset:
    For #3: Right click on Start> Explore> Windows> System 32> find and click to run filename: OnlineScannerUninstaller.exe

    Then download and run the Windows Installer Clean up Utility.
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290301

    It's a small download that will show files you can delete but that don't show up elsewhere. Don't go hog happy here- you're looking for Eset/Nod32 entries!

    Empty the Recycle Bin when through. Reboot.

    I'm sorry you felt it necessary to do that. My thought is that a reformat/reinstall should only be done when there is a serious problem and nothing else work.

    By the way, I use Nod32. It has worked perfectly and kept me virus, Worm and Trojan free. It updates quietly in the background with no problem.

    Bobbye,one more question,you say you use eset as your antivirus.,i used it years ago.
    tell me something,does it have now an addon,plugin to block ads,banners, ?
    and like i said,,i'm using now the latest version of kapersky, and it has it...but i run the free version of malwarebytes and it detected 3 trojans..lol!!! i thought i was protected.

    I can't answer that! The reasons being: I use 'layered protection'. I don't see anything within the program to specifically block ads or banners in addition to it's AV protection.
    1. I use the Firefox browser. I have two add-ons: I put links in so you can read about them.
    AdBlock Plus (not available for IE)
    Easy List
    2. Firefox also has a pop-up blocker in the Content section.
    3. I have Nod32 and expect it only to do what it's suppose to> protect against malicious system attacks by controlling file, email and Internet communication. If a threat with malicious code is detected, the Antivirus module can eliminate it by first blocking it, and then cleaning, deleting or moving it to quarantine.
    4. I also have 2 spyware/adware programs
    5. I have a router.

    The combined effects of all of the above have kept the system clean. And a particular effect of the two ad-ons is a lot of white space on a web page where ads and banners would be! If I had to give a more specific answer for Nod32 itself, I'd say that if a pop-up or banner contained 'malicious code' then it would block it.

    It sounds like you thought having Kaspersky would guarantee no malware would get on the system! Not so- layered protection is best.

    From Eset Support:
    Using Windows explorer for the manual uninstall:Right click on Start> Explore> Windows> System 32> double-click on OnlineScannerUninstaller.exe to run. Follow any on screen prompts.
