Uninstalled the damn thing a few days ago using Revo uninstaller. Thought it was all fine, then I checked and found some Kaspersky app processes were still running and using resources.
Checked the file directory and there was a whole “Kaspersky Security Cloud 21.3” + Kaspersky stuff that was still there. I ended the processes, removed registries, restarted. Deleted every single file in the folder, which did get deleted except for this one file: antimalware_provider.dll.
Windows can’t delete it because it’s apparently open in a lot of apps including Windows update etc. Ending the processes would force my device to restart which beats the point because restarting, re-starts the processes “using” it as well.
Would really appreciate it if anyone could help me.
