Sometimes removing Kaspersky Antivirus or Kaspersky Internet Security or Kaspersky PURE completely is important to fix issues with it or the operating system. You can easily uninstall it using the Programs and Features function (also known as Add or Remove Programs in Windows XP) in the Control Panel. Even after uninstalling this way you may get errors related to left over files or drivers. Completely removing a security suite like the Kaspersky Lab products sometimes requires more than the default uninstaller program shipped with it. For this reason, the vendors of the application releases special uninstaller that removes everything their application installed including hidden drivers. Kaspersky Lab has one such special tool aptly called Kaspersky Lab Products Remover popularly known as kavremover to do the dirty job here.
