Activation Key
« on: May 26, 2010, 10:59:02 AM »
I had Avast installed on my Laptop nearly 1 month ago, it was explained to me if i emailed Avast near the end of the 1 month period trial i would be sent a new code to put in and i would get it free for 1 yr.
I emailed Avast nearly 2 weeks ago and have recieved no code yet. I keep getting up a red box that says my trail is coming to an end soon.
Am i doing something wrong?

Click on Maintenance, than Registration for online registering.
1) Open Avast.
2) Click on "Maintenance" then "Registration".
3) Fill out the form for your license key and click "Submit".

When the time is about to expire you will receive a popup notice to register it again.
Note that you will also need to do steps above if you ever need to reinstall the program.

If it fails (or you're in an offline computer), try offline registration.
Fill the form here ( http://www.avast.com/registration-free-antivirus.php ) and enter (copy & paste) the serial number you've recieved by email.
The best things in life are free.

Where was this explained to you ?
What version of avast do you have installed avast 5.0 Free/Pro/Suite ?

I emailed Avast nearly 2 weeks ago and have recieved no code yet. I keep getting up a red box that says my trail is coming to an end soon.

You should have been able to register through the avastUI (as Tech mentioned) and not have to submit any email.

Would you care to expand as you have breathed life into a topic heading for three years old.

It would be best if you expanded on your problem avast version number, free/pro/Internet Security, etc. in your own new topic.

There's less need for a new topic, cause the entire topic is related despite it being old. Thanks. :-)
And my query was over my Avast! Internet Security Beta. Last updated a week ago v8.0.1434 and am familiar with the fact that the current version available is v8.0.1476 or more. While updating the program version, it registered that it just expired and need a renewal. Had zero days to it. I tried inserting a new license key but it but it could not go beyond 18 digits living 9 extra as like before when I installed it. My previous license key was somewhat close to 27 digits. So my query is whether there has been a change cause it cuts at 18 digits as displayed above: [xxxxxx--xxxxxx--xxxxxx]??? And if there's, please inform me about it either via this post or my email: paupka@gmail.com! If key is known too please forward it to my email. I will so very much appreciate it. Thanks.

It isn't related as almost three years ago it was avast 4.x/5.x and their registration was different.

Placing your email address in an open forum is likely to have it harvested by a spambot.
