I recently downloaded a trial version of Kaspersky AV 4.0 to run on XP. After using it a few times I decided to uninstall it. The software did not come with its own uninstaller so i tried to remove it via the Control Panel/Add Remove programs option.

Initially it could not complete uninstallation due to a system date error, but i have started to get KAV script checker errors when
i try and access elements of the control panel i.e. user accounts

i would appreciate a bit a guidance

uninstall the software via Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> Add/Remove Programs.
 2) Reboot pc
3) Locate the folders and delete them if they exist; C:\PROGRAM FI LES\KASPERSKY LAB C:\PROGRAM FI LES\COMMON FI LES\KAV (AVP) SHARED FI LES C:\PROGRAM FI LES\ANT I VI RAL T OOLKI T PRO C:\PROGRAM FI LES\AVP SHARED FI LES.
4) Empty your C:\Windows\T emp folder
5) Empty Recycle Bin

also u can do this too.
-------------------------
To do this using Kav removal tool: - You can use the file from www.kasperskylab.co.uk/files/utils/remkav.zip to remove the Kaspersky for you. Save the zip file to your hard drive, then extract contents to a folder e.g. called kavtools Double click the file KAV_Registry_Clean.exe.
