How to Kill a Kaspersky Process

Kaspersky Lab is an international company that formed in 1997. The company specializes in Internet security software for homes, small offices and businesses. When a Kaspersky program is running on your computer, a corresponding Kaspersky process, such as kavsvc.exe, is running. Killing the process closes the program. However, the program and the corresponding process can be restarted at a later time.

You may want to kill a process to speed up your computer.
