Well, you could try the NOD32 Uninstall Utility:

Documented here:

ESET instructs you to copy this utility to your local system, reboot into safe mode, and then run the program.

Also note that there is yet-another update to NOD32 available... version 4.2.64.  I am posting it to now.  This is a minor bugfix release.  No one should feel compelled to install this build unless you are experiencing significant problems with the old version.

I did try that earlier, but ESET doesn't show up there either.

Sounds like a damaged entry in the Windows Installer database.  I would
try using "MSICUU" to delete the database records for NOD32, and then
attempt reinstallation.

Run MSICUU.exe (MSI Cleanup Utility) directly from the following share:

MSICUU is a old graphical front-end to the still-maintained "MSIZAP"
tool. MSIZAP is a bit of a pain to use, so I still recommend using
"MSICUU", but providing it with an updated MSIZAP in the same directory
(which you will find in the above mentioned file share).
