Concerning Kaspersky Internet Security 2010
Please follow the procedure below should you wish to uninstall Kaspersky Internet Security 2010:
  • In order to avoid incorrect uninstallation, exit from the application:
    • Right-click the K icon on the bottom right hand corner of the desktop
    • Select Exit


  • Remove the application using the Setup Wizard. To do this, perform the following:
    • Click Start
    • Click All programs
    • Choose Kaspersky Internet Security 2010
    • Click Modify, Repair or Remove




  • Click on the Remove icon on the Setup Window
  • Select one from the following options
    • Complete uninstall - choose this variant if you want to fully remove the application and if you will no longer use it in the near future. Note: by selecting this option, allapplication objects, including any remaining license validity period will be removed  from the machine.
    • Save application objects - choose this variant if you only want to update the application version. This option will delete old program files and registry entries, allowing installation of the new version. Option to save the following objects are provided (It is recommended to select and save “Keep activation data”, if the current license is still valid):
      • Keep activation data
      • Anti-Spam database (if the Anti-Spam component was deployed and trained while in use)
      • Keep backup and quarantine files (the option is available only if malicious objects were detected and were backed up during previous sessions)
      • Keep protection settings (user settings of the Kaspersky Internet Security components)
      • Keep iSwift and iChecker data (use to accelerate the application work)
  • Once the appropriate choice(s) has been made, click next to confirm and proceed with the uninstallation process.
  • Wait till program files and registry keys are removed
  • It is necessary to uninstall the application system drivers correctly. This is possible once the uninstallation process is complete. It is therefore important to restart the machine in order to complete the uninstall process. A restart can be performed immediately after the procedure. This option is presented after the program features you have selected have been removed. Another option is to delay the restart of the computer,  this can be done manually later on.
