Additional Comments

If wine can't start, rename Kaspersky Lab directory and change Windows version to ME or 98. It can't works with 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista, wine output say me about wrong ntoskrnl.exe file in program's directory. I don't know how call main window without installation of Taskbar Manager or clicking security or error notifications. It is very cool that Kaspersky anti-virus works in wine! Thank you, developers!

Uninstallation of KAV program is easy. Just run installation exe file. If you have not this, run command like this:

MsiExec.exe /I{4B9BB601-13E9-4042-A3BC-E7955BF4A98F}

This command may do nothing, search lines with "uninstall" word in system.reg and use right string like this: {4B9BB601-13E9-4042-A3BC-E7955BF4A98F}.

It is great that KAV works with wine! Enjoy!
