Hiya Gurus
I'm avaluating a couple of antivurus programs, And i've installed
Kaspersky, but I can't remove it, It won't even let me disable it.
How can I uninstall it now? If this is how it's going to work on my
system, then I don't want anything to do with it.
I was running AVG & have been happy with it, But after readign a few
posts here about Kaspersky, I thought i'd give it a go, But I don't like
how it's taken control away from me.
Anybody know how I can get rid of it?

Aido.

You haven't explained exactly what doesn't work, or the version. For
one example, with KAV 6.0 you have:

Start - Programs - Kaspersky Antivirus 6.0 - Modify, Repair or Remove

Does that facility not work correctly?

Did you begin by right-clicking on the Kaspersky icon on the toolbar
and selecting Exit?

Hiya Art
Yes i've tried right-clicking on the toolbar, It comes up with the
shutdown box, but it won't shutdown. I've tried "Start-All
Programs-Kaspersky-Modifie,Repaire,Remove & I get the same box. I've
gone into "Add-Remove programs" & get the same box. When I OK it to
"Uninstall", I get a message saying I have to shut it down first with
the buttons of "Retry" & "Close", It just repeats when I click on
"Retry", "Close" just stops the procedue.
I've mannaged to disable it, But it won't let me uninstall.
I'ts Version 6.0.

Aido.

It's possible you have a corrupt installation. You may wish to try
reinstalling the product over the current installation, then
uninstalling it. That is, unless you've attempted this already.

Go here...

ftp://kav2006:Fynb02dbhec60@data.kaspersky.com

and download the KisKav6Remove.zip tool. This is a special tool to
completly remove the program if the uninstaller is failing.
