I'm attempting an upgrade from KIS 2011 to KIS 2012. After uninstalling KIS 2011, my Windows 7 gadgets have quit working, and are not being displayed correctly. Some are cropped, some are only partially displayed. I've tried reinstalling some gadgets and have tried running from the cmd line the following to attempt to reset the sidebar gadgets, but it didn't fix the issue:

taskkill /im sidebar.exe /f
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 scrrun.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 atl.dll
Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sbdrop.dll"
Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\wlsrvc.dll"
reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones" /f
"%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe"

I followed this procdure when uninstalling KIS 2011:

Right clicked the Kaspersky icon in system tray and selected Exit
Uninstalled Kaspersky> rebooted into safe mode, then ran the kaspersky removal tool for KIS anti-virus and Internet Security 2011.
Rebooted after using removal tool
Generated the GSI link

I really want to be able to use the gadgets even if it means to continue using KIS 2011 although my license has expired, and I've already purchased KIS 2012. I tried installing KIS 2012 but the gadgets still don't work.

Any ideas on how to fix?
