Downloaded the Kaspersky app just for fun and to give it go. It had a trial time so when the time was up, I simply just dragged the app into the trash can and then emptied it. However, the kaspersky "K" icon on the menu bar just won't go away.

It kept prompting me to update the app but I can't even update because I've already deleted it. It has the option for me to "quit" but when I restart, it appears again.

I've tried deleting the file over at library/applications support but it still won't go away.


Here is the official uninstallation tool for OS X:

Download and run this package to completely remove the app.

    @Buscar This is still my fastest (33 seconds from OP asking the question; Ask Different record) – grg Sep 25 '14 at 18:29
  • Since it is Trashed already, does the OP has to reinstall the kaspersky first? – Ruskes Sep 25 '14 at 18:43
  • @Buscar No, it's a standalone removal tool. – grg Sep 25 '14 at 18:43
