Kaspersky Internet Security - blocking keyboard and mouse input when it has focus

Has anyone else encountered the issue where when trying to close Kaspersky remotely (because it was inhibiting the installation if XYZ app) that your keyboard and mouse input is lost?

 

I had to uninstall Kaspersky in order to install a particular piece of software remotely on my PC today.

 

Im guessing Kaspersky is deliberately blocking attempts to disable it remotely.

 

Disabling Kaspersky Internet Security in MSConfig has no effect as its just re-enabled on the next reboot presumably by some other service I dont know about so my only option was to remotely uninstall it.

That's normal, it's Kaspersky Self-Defense and it's enabled by default. It is a minor thorn in my side too, just disable it in the future, before you need to control it remotely again of course.
