The temporary uninstaller executable (AU_.exe) triggers this. Kaspersky's "Proactive Defense" component detects it as a "PDM.Rootshell". It seems the uninstaller is not blocked from doing anything, though.

Tested with OpenVPN 2.2-RC2 uninstaller. Should be reproducible with 2.1.x as NSIS components are the same.
