Kapersky

Having done a reinstall I keep getting a message about an incompatible Kapersky driver.

Since I have never used Kapersky and it's in my Win 7 partition it must have installed with Win 7, so why am I getting an incompatibility message?

Any idea how I can rid of Kapersky? It doesn't appear in control panel, and when I do a download and install from the the site recommended by MS I get "incompatible with this OS".

The message appearing every time I boot is more of an inconvenience than anything else. but I would like to get rid of it (and Kapersky itself) if I can.

Many thanks.

The minor annoyance has disappeared of its own accord.

Any bits left over will go anyway when I either re-install Xp or install a full Win 7 retail version.

Ah! I see. Thanks, never thought of that.

It really is a bit of a mystery.

I have Win 7 installed on another computer from the same ISO disc and yet there is no sign of this message.

And why am I being directed to a site to download an updated driver, only to be told, when I try, that this driver is not compatible with Win7?

The OS is so stable and trouble free in all other respects (so far!).

You said at the beginning you never used it that it was only in the Win7 partion I was wondering if it was just bits left over in the registry

Does a registry cleaner uninstall a programme?

I've run CCleaner, which does work with Win 7, and Kaspersky doesn't appear.

"try spelling Kaspersky correctly,"

I don't see how spelling "Kapersky" correctly on this forum will suddenly make it appear in Control Pane, or make it compatible with Win 7.

"why not keep it"

I don't want it.

I got exactly the same message about incompatible driver likely to cause instabillity so it was blocked when I tried installing Norton 360v3 that I got for free after the Beta test.

Can only think win7 has a problem with some of the AV programs, AVG working fine

Not sure about this, but try spelling Kaspersky correctly, and anyhow why not keep it - it's the best there is!
