I just tryed to uninstal ESET, and as usual, there was a problem,

it either said that one of my applications was already using a file OR that one of my files necessary for uninstalation was gone,

but then I started to close down some apps with task manager, didnt work, then when I tryed to close the "wscntfy.exe" app, then a pop up tooltip told me that the ESET firewall was down,

Click here to fix the problem bla bla bla...

so I opened control panel, and activaded Windows own firewall again, then tryed to uninstall the ESET anti-virus software, and it finally worked!!! :D
This actually seemed to work! I'd like to add that I also:

1. Closed everything that had to do with ESET via the Task Manager, except for ONE ESET component which kept popping up (I think it was ekrn.exe).
2. Started up the Windows Firewall.
3. Add/Remove the ESET program.
4. When it whines about "an ESET program being open" I tabbed to the Task Manager, stopped the process and QUICKLY switched back to the uninstallation process and pressed next. Gave me one more pop-up complaining about "Make sure they're all closed, but continue therafter", which I did. And whilst it was uninstalling I kept stopping the ESET process in the Task Manager while it was uninstalling it. And after maybe 2-3 seconds it gave me the confirmation that the program was gone.

Thank you Dobrichara for your tip =)
