I had the same problem. I spent almost two hours trying to remove this nation zoom nuisance. I did what richbuff said and I was able to remove a few programs that shouldn't have passed Kaspersky's detection in the first place! However, I still had to fix a few things here and there manually but the trickiest part was when I found out that it actually hijacked Chrome shortcut as well, thanks to this ~, if you won't clean the shortcut the nation zoom bug will be loaded no matter what you do. So, it's a very important step. It's simply clever and works just fine, who ever created this is dr. evil to say the least. Then I ran Malwarebytes, it removed a few more PUPs. My PC seems to be fine now.

It would be really great if Kaspersky could block such annoying browser hijacking programs automatically without the need to enable detection through additional settings.

P.S. your validation email went straight to spam, quite unsolid for a company like Kaspersky wink.gif

edit: del link to external disinfection instructions.
