Issue with Kaspersky Anti-Virus Perosnal 5.0

I need to update the license because it has expired. When I click the link in the program, it tells me to upgrade to version 7.0 and just enter the expired ".KEY" file. But this doesn't work, as my edition of Kaspersky 5.0 came with System Mechanic 6 by Iolo. (Thank god that Iolo carries ISOs of every CD-ROM they've ever made! I would never have restored my computer without the ISO!)

Here's my question:

Where can I buy a new license key (the ".KEY" file is the license key) that works on Kaspersky personal 5.0 WITHOUT upgrading to 7.0?
