I would unplug the cable modem before you uninstall it as you will be unprotected until after you install the new version.
Kaspersky probably has an uninstall program that would be better to use than the uninstall from add/remove programs. Look in you Kaspersky folder for it and if there is not one there, look on their website for it.
I cannot find an uninstall tool for it on their site and they do recommend using the add/remove programs method. If you would rather use the uninstall tool, I found a link to it in one of the pinned topics here. http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2009/0...ware/#more-2878
The one for Kaspersky is number eight on the page
