    I recently installed Kaspersky PURE Total Security on one of my computers. I'd go to the Security & Malware Removal section, but this is not a malware problem, it's a software problem.

    Anyway, the computer I installed it on doesn't have a fast enough CPU, or enough ram to run it. So it won't finish booting. It goes through all of the early boot stuff, like Post and CMOS, and but after the Windows XP logo, I just get a black screen with the cursor. The cursor can be moved, but the Welcome screen never loads.

    If I can get to System Restore, I can get to a point where Kaspersky hasn't installed any startup processes or anything, then I can uninstall it. Any ideas on how I can do that?

    If you can boot into safemode it won't load Kaspersky and you'll be able to delete it.
