    that it is installed, how can I get this fixed? The security center still has a yellow checkmark about it, I got Comodo installed now but it still thinks Kaspersky is on the system.

    With administrative privileges:
    NET STOP WINMGMT /Y >ENTER
    REN %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\WBEM\REPOSITORY REP.OLD >ENTER
    Reboot and you should be done.

    I got
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>NET STOP WINMGMT /Y
    The following services are dependent on the Windows Management Instrumentation service.
    Stopping the Windows Management Instrumentation service will also stop these services.

    IP Helper

    The IP Helper service is stopping.
    The IP Helper service was stopped successfully.

    The Windows Management Instrumentation service is stopping.
    The Windows Management Instrumentation service was stopped successfully.


    C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>REN %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\WBEM\REPOSITORY REP.OLD
    A duplicate file name exists, or the file
    cannot be found.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>REN %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\WBEM\REPOSITORY REP.OLD >
    The syntax of the command is incorrect.
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>

    Try again,
    don't wait after first ENTER, because the service will restart automatically, and block the action.
    NET STOP WINMGMT /Y >ENTER
    REN %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\WBEM\REPOSITORY REP.alt >ENTER

    Do a reboot

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>NET STOP WINMGMT /Y
    The Windows Management Instrumentation service is not started.

    More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3521.
