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.

The Internet is abuzz about the latest most advanced and complex threat called “Flame” (also known as Flamer or Skywiper) after Duqu and Stuxnet.
