Due to this sluggish behaviour I removed KIS again. Used the safe boot way (in the past, when removing KIS I never used the safe boot mode, wasn't aware of it)
After uninstalling KIS (kavremove.exe) and rebooting in normal mode, all services were stopped, personal theme/settings were greyed out, no network, etc.etc.
Spent hours on trying to fix this, but ended up installing WIndows... (could not do a systemrestore, it was disabled, one way or the other)
Great!
Everybody will say this shouldn't be happening and that I am one out of millions and (of course) nobody heard about such issues before... 
But fact is, it did
I followed the exact steps as per Kaspersky's support website.

Installed NIS and MBAM and they work fine!

UPDATE: 2014-07-03 - made notes in the review regarding:
  • I today came across McAfee Stinger Portable | PortableApps.com (a potential $FREE MBAM alternative which I have not trialled).
  • I today noticed that the Vista Ultimate installation of MBAM updated itself:
     * from version series 1.x (PRO),
     * to the newer version series 2.x (Premium),
     - so I would guess that the version series 1.x might now be obsolete.

@IainB

There is a new look for MBAM you may want to add?  Some functions are different as well.  Or gone... i.e. tabs, 3rd-party stuff, etc.

As of this posting you can scroll down and see some of the screens here:  https://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/

I guess just a one-fourth screen-shot link is okay?  Is this the Authentic IainB?   Grin smiley

What I was referring to was in particular response to that question, and it was was where the opening post of my mini-review now says So, for more information, please refer to that review - which also includes 10 or so screenshots of the MBAM GUI and windows. (see quote below).
I often post some/all of the comment-worthy text content sourced from other posts sans embedded hyperlinks/images, for purely informational purposes and so that people can independently use the hyperlink to the source to access the real McCoy for fuller information. However, I would generally avoid copying/duplicating all the content (including screenshots) of a perfectly good existing review - e.g., like the excellent one by PCmag - to avoid unnecessary duplication and the risk of detracting from their well-deserved potential traffic hits.

1. Using MBAM version series 2.x Premium (PAID)
============================================

...There's not a lot to report otherwise, except that the latest MBAM Premium version 2.x GUI and modus operandi are different/improved to the MBAM PRO version 1.x. These differences are discussed in a rigorous test review report of MBAM Premium, by the excellent Neil J. Rubenking - Lab Results Looking Up - Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0 Review & Rating | PCMag.com.
So, for more information, please refer to that review - which also includes 10 or so screenshots of the MBAM GUI and windows.
(My thanks to @Arizona Hot for pointing out the PCMAG review in his comment Re: Interesting "stuff".)

Summary rating from that PCMAG review:
Note that Install and scan in Safe Mode is a newly-added feature, and the Chameleon and rootkit scan features were previously functions that were separate to and not integrated with MBAM v1.x.
PROS
Installs and scans in Safe Mode.
Chameleon technology resists malware attack.
Excellent results in malware removal lab test.
Improved user interface and ease of use.
Integrates previously separate rootkit scan.
CONS
No real-time protection against attack.
BOTTOM LINE
When other antivirus products fail, tech support
agents turn to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.
It remains a very effective cleanup tool, and
with version 2.0 it gets significant improvements
in appearance and ease of use.

@IainB

I'm not meaning to dis anyone here but I have to admit I don't click on every link in any post.  No posted image(s) ...no interest.

 ohmy  This newest MBAM version is totally different anyway so it's image may look out of place.
The Premium, Pro and Free all look the same with Premium having the most features and Free having the least.
