How to remove a password from NOD32

 

You may have discovered there is no way to remove the program Nod32 without the password – even if you try to do this using the Windows program removal option you'll be prompted to enter it. Or to add a new username and password

According to the Nod32 web site you'll need to get an unlock key to do this. So, first visit this link and download the program unlock.exe to your computer and then run it: . When you do this, a window will open displaying an ID code. Visit this page: and type the ID code into a message to the support team – tell them you need an unlock code for the software because you've lost your password and want to uninstall the program or to update it. 

 

You'll then receive a reply from the ESET support team. Run the Unlock.exe program again, enter you unlock code and click Unlock – the program will then have the password protection disabled allowing you to uninstall it either using the Windows program removal utility (Start, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs) or using the program's own uninstall utility which you can access via Start, All Programs, Eset, Uninstall.

Windows is unable to install updates after repairing the operating system

With the arrival of Windows Genuine Advantage Tool comes a few problems associated with Automatic Updates.

Your Windows XP Operating system has become unstable or for what ever reason you have chosen to run a repair option over the existing Windows Directory and all of a sudden you cannot get any Windows updates. This is because a file has been trashed in the process. There is a simple remedy for this that allows you to reset the file and reinstate Windows Updates (about 81 of them!).

This is all done in the Command Window. You can copy & paste in these commands.

 

1. Stop the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:

2. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.

3. At the command prompt, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each command:

 

net stop wuauserv

4. Register the file that is used by Windows Update and Microsoft Update. To do this, follow these steps:

 

5. At the command prompt, type the following command, press ENTER after the command, and then click OK when you receive a verification message:

 

regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll

 

Note: for x64 machines regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll

 

6. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:

At the command prompt, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each command:

 

net start wuauserv

exit

 

After this you will be able to install the updates.
