Activation issues after Windows reinstall - All "Devices" removed but says Exceeded Max Number of Activations

For reasons I cannot explain, all three laptops in the house slowed to a crawl. After much troubleshooting, just decided to screw it and reinstall Windows.

As I’m reinstalling Kaspersky Total Security I’m getting the “You exceeded the maximum number of activations...” message. I went into My Kaspersky “Devices” section, redownloaded the app, and still having a problem. There’s a little over a year left on our 3-device subscription.

Then decided to just wipe out all devices on the My Kaspersky homepage, thinking these were somehow old “links” of some kind and I needed to re-establish them with the reinstalled Windows. Nope. That didn’t work either.

What’s it going to take to reinstall KTS on my machine? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
