Most likely Kaspersky classifies us as a worm because we use the UPX executable 
packer. The next build will not do this - the exe will be a bit bigger but 
should not be flagged up.

For uninstall/reinstall, I suggest you:

Delete the folder (program files\freenet)
Remove the registry key (or group of registry keys):
Delete the system service (from control panel?)
Delete the start menu/desktop shortcuts if any.

Sorry it took so long to deal with this.
