How to Uninstall Kaspersky

By Ryan Casima

Kaspersky system security programs, including Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2010, are some of the most popular Microsoft Windows security suites. However, if you've switched to a different program, you'll want to uninstall your Kaspersky program to prevent problems. Uninstalling a Kaspersky security program is done the same way as with any other program installed on a computer and should not take the user more than a minute or two to complete.
