After you remove a McAfee antivirus solution, some of its records may remain in the system registry and prevent a Kaspersky Lab product from installation. Make sure you fully remove McAfee products before installing a Kaspersky Lab product. Use the following guides:
To remove third-party software using Microsoft Windows tools, please refer to these instructions.
When you use regular Windows tools for removal, some files and folders of the previously installed software may remain in the system.

If you are sure you have completely removed third-party antivirus software, but you still experience problems installing a Kaspersky Lab product, please create a request to Kaspersky Lab Technical Support via My Kaspersky. Attach a report of the Getsysteminfo tool to your request. In the request, give detailed description of the problem and the actions necessary to reproduce the problem.
