There is a known issue with the ESET NOD32 Antivirus software getting into a "loop" while examining ongoing Rainmeter processes and causing Rainmeter to be unresponsive.
If Rainmeter loads, but does not display skins and the Windows System Tray / Notification Area icon is unresponsive, then this is almost certainly the issue.
To fix it:
In NOD32, add an "exception" for the following folders:
Windows XP: C:\Program Files\Rainmeter
Windows Vista & Win7: C:\Program Files\Rainmeter
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Application Data\Rainmeter
Windows Vista & Win7: C:\Users\YourName\Appdata\Roaming\Rainmeter
Restart Rainmeter and it should work fine.
If you are unsure how to do this in ESET NOD32, go here:
