Windows 7: Problem with Kaspersky uninstall old version and installing new one

Problem with Kaspersky uninstall old version and installing new one

I have a Dell Inspiron 580 windows 7 x64 I had kaspersky 2011 and bought the renewal/update of kaspersky 2013. installed kaspersky 2013 without uninstalling 2011, seemed fine, rebooted, got the blue screen of death. My computer would then only start up in safe mode (not even safe mode with networking). I did a system restore. Did the uninstall of kaspersky 2011 was prompted to reboot, blue screen of death, system restore. After the system restore I ran the report utility they said I should run and it came up with 1 file as incompatible with the software ApnToolbarInstaller.exe -the Ask toolbar. The program doesn't show under the uninstall window, it doesn't show as an addon for firefox, explorer, or chrome. BUT if I follow the location of where the utility says it is I can find the file in it's folder. However I can't uninstall it from there, can't even open in. I tried Revo uninstaller and it doesn't show up there either. I tried Microsoft Fixit. To uninstall something it doesn't seem to know is there it seems to need the product code. I don't know how to get that for the Ask toolbar. I tried it to uninstall the old Kaspersky with Fixit and had to do the same blue screen system restore dance. How do I get this thing out of my computer? How do I make Kaspersky work? please and thank you
