    I deleted kaspersky security by going dragging it too app cleaner. and its not within applications or anywhere on a search.

    I thought this would mean it is deleted, however on startup it pops up and also has the K up top right at clock.

    I'm doing a fresh install so if it cant be fixed I'm not worried, i'd just like to know how this happens.
    I see it has an uninstaller if i re download the app, but is that always the case with apps that have uninstallers, that is, that if you delete it and not uninstall it will remain on the system?

    applications like app cleaner don't do a complete job of removing applications. There are threads telling you how to fully delete apps.
