Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 not compatible with microsoft windows 8

I installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 a few months ago while using windows 7 Home Premium and it works perfectly. 3 days ago I installed windows 8 Pro, after that I tried to open Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 unfortunately it won't work because of the incompatibility issue. So I tried to uninstalled it by using control panel > programs > programs and feature > uninstall Kaspersky Internet Security 2013. However the system can't uninstall it and it says that the windows have an issue with incompatibility of Kaspersky Internet Security 2013. So what should I do now? It feels like my anti-virus has become the unstoppable virus that won't let me having an anti virus... T__T Please help...
