Last couple of days, my PC was plagued with problems related to reduced performance and frequent disabling of security software. A little fiddling around and I realized for some reason my Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 was having some problem. The update process was taking forever and it was not updating database. Finally, I decided to uninstall the software and re-install it.
I directly went to Programs and Features option to uninstall KIS 2014. But I got the error message displayed below. From the message, it seems Kaspersky software was removed, but not completely. This is what happens when the security software is corrupted. The file corruption may prevent you from uninstalling the software properly. Installing KIS without uninstalling the previous version properly may create more problems in the future.
Finally, I was able to fix it by getting it installed properly.
Follow the steps below to uninstall Kaspersky Software
- Uninstall Kaspersky completely using the Kaspersky uninstall tool. This tool can be used to remove any Kaspersky software. Under the section “How to use the utility”, download kavremover.
- Run the software with admin priviliges
Kaspersky Software is now completely removed.
Hope this will help you fix the problems with uninstalling Kaspersky Software.
