I would like your help for an issue I encounter:
Each time I was switching on my laptop, I've constantly hit the "Run database update", ending up to a cumulative bunch of files (approx. ~2Gb) on "C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\AVP19.0.0\Temp\temporaryFolder\updates\bin\kav19\22.214.171.1248_kis_e\[am_core.dll.132_...............removeOnNextReboot etc.]"!
These files, where never removed (despite their ...extension) for years now, taking up valuable space on my HDD.
So, I would like to ask if I can safely remove these files...
I really, do not know if this is a bug...
I am at your disposal if you need some further info.
Thank you very much & keep up the good work 😉
With kind regards,

Finally, I managed to re-install it!! WOW, what an adventure!!!
Before to proceed with GSI (no need anymore), I ran a manual scan everywhere on registry & disk for remnants, and indeed, as we suspected there were some major leftovers registered as [SYSTEM] on registry, on drivers, on services etc. that they couldn't be removed with the default uninstaller or kavremvr tool - really dunno why.
So, I elevated permissions with PsExec & kavremvr/regedit and ...voila!
Everything cleared, safe and sound!
I only wish that in the future KAV/KIS releases will be a fix for these kind of issues, in order to avoid such circumstances (plus for the ".removeOnNextReboot" files issue)...
I want to thank you very much all, because without your VALUABLE help & guidance I would not have succeeded that way!
Keep up the good work & see ya around
