Download the kavremover tool

Kavremover is a free tool for removing Kaspersky applications that cannot be removed completely using standard Windows tools.


We recommend using the latest tool version.Do not use the kavremover tool unless recommended to do so by Kaspersky Customer Service engineers. Unreasonable using of the tool may complicate the application removal.

When you use the kavremover tool, the following information and settings will be also removed along with the application:

  • License information. Make sure that the license key or activation code is saved before using the tool. We recommend connecting the application to your My Kaspersky account, where your license information will be stored.
  • All application settings. If you want to save the application settings, export them before removing the application. If required, see the instructions on how to import and export settings, using Kaspersky Internet Security as an example.

The kavremover tool does not support Windows XP. Also, for security reasons, it cannot be used in the silent mode or without a captcha.

Before making changes to the system, create a restore point.
