Reinstall VPC2007 (or first uninstall, then reboot, then install
VPC2007). THis will not touch your virtual machines but will reinstate
all needed drivers.
But make double sure "Eset Smart Security" is permanently and
completely removed from the host first.
And by the way, what is so *smart* about these products that always
seem to intrude on your usage of your PC, like yesterday MacAfee
pulled down nearly a million PC:s worldwide?
