I've been having problems with Kaspersy AV and intended to uninstall and re-install. However, I thought I would remove the Secure connection program first. As soon as I installed it. I wished I hadn't.
So today I went through the normal uninstall via the Apps page in settings. The uninstall seemed to progress normally until the progress bar got to the end where it sat for over 10 minutes. "Please Wait" it said.
I clicked the cancel button and nothing happened. The X did nothing.
Got tired of waiting so I used Task Manager to end the installer.
I restarted the computer. It boots and gets to the windows sign-in screen, but when I sign in windows will not start. I get a whirlygig for forever.
I can boot into Safe Mode.
So is there a program or procedure I can use in safe mode to get rid of Kaspersky completely, and fix whatever it messed up with the botched uninstall?
