Replacing third-party security applications

Installation of Kaspersky Lab security applications through Kaspersky Security Center may require removal of third-party software incompatible with the application being installed. There are two main ways of removing the third-party applications.

Automatic removal of incompatible applications using the installer

This is supported by various types of installation. Before the security application installation, all incompatible applications are removed automatically if the properties window of the installation package of this security application (Incompatible applications section) has the Uninstall incompatible applications automatically check box selected.

Removing incompatible applications through a dedicated task

To remove incompatible applications, use the Uninstall application remotely task. This task should be run on devices before the security application installation task. For example, in the installation task you can select On completing another task as the schedule type where the other task is Uninstall application remotely.

This method of uninstallation is useful when the security application installer cannot properly remove an incompatible application.
