How to remove program that does not appear in Programs and Features?

I'm trying to install Windows 7. During the install, it tells me that I need to uninstall the Kapersky Anti-Virus program. However, Kapersky does not show up in Programs and Features.

"Have you been into your C drive folders and looked for Kaspersky? If not, do so.
You may also have to enter the computer's registry and delete other related files.
If you venture into the registry, tread lightly or have someone who is competent help you do this. It's too easy to brick your machine by deleting the wrong thing in the registry."

"Depending on which Kaspersky, AppRemover detects it.

It can also do heuristic removal for apps not fully supported."

"I'm reading a bit between the lines and I take it you have a Windows 7 Upgrade version? It is actually possible to perform a FULL INSTALL using a Windows 7 Upgrade, giving you a cleaner OS than upgrading from your old OS.

Full Install using an Upgrade version of Windows 7

In short, you skip the CD-Key entry, and you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 7... takes longer but it will be a cleaner install."
