Please provide me with the best methods, tools, or utilities I can use to uninstall or remove 360 Safety Guard/360 Antivirus/ 360 Safe Defender from a Windows 8 computer.

This 360 Safety Guard program doesn't show up anywhere and I need to uninstall it so I can install Kaspersky on this computer.

Try Adwcleaner  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/ (the 360 may be piggybacking on something else)

and then MalwareBytes (free version)  https://www.malwarebytes.com/  (Remove/uninstall MBAM afterwards)

Then look at this Kapersky thread https://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=222976 for removing registry key.

The procedure is as follows:-

1. Run Regedit and under
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software及HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software search for 360

    Note:If your OS is 64 bit, search under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Wow6432Node and HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Wow6432Node

360 key 1
360 key 2
2. Delete the keys related to 360 and Kaspersky  can be installed in your computer.
