Whilst this may be a server issue (busy); it could be something else (see below). You obviously have plenty of time so try again later.

You can also click the off-line registration option and fill in the form at avast.com, this should send you an email with a registration key. This can then be entered via the avast interface.

No, but I gave up on MBAM Pro's Malicious site blocking as it is by far its worst point as it doesn't do what it says block malicious sites as its database is much wider than just malicious sites and for that reason it got disabled. You have A) your browser (most have malicious/phishing site blocking, firefox does), B) the network Shield, C) the Web Shield and D) firefox add-ons AdBlockPlus (you can add.subscribe to its Malware Domains list).

So more options than you can shake a stock at and as far as I'm concerned more than enough not to need MBAM's malicious site blocking, which for me is more hassle than it is worth.

Hi folks,

Seems that this IP block is given valid as I read from malwarebytes forums,
Quote
The IP is blocked because it's part of a Voxility range (there's a plethora of abuse over there, and no response from them to date).
  quote source MBAM forum mod  MysteryFCM, re: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=104985
I found no additional proof at bizimbal: the IP is not in their list. BrightCloud gives a yellow 40 rep index meaning
Quote
Suspicious
There is a higher than average probability that the user will be exposed to malicious links or payloads.
Another example of a Voxility range block ny MBAM and that was not a false positive: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=105236
link author  answering request to have it removed = MysteryFCM again.
Seems that this domain was involved:  htxp://i2.lulzimg.com/383df8b6ec.jpg  and that more than one instances of it are no longer responsive,  so closed.
That IP is still up, so there might be new malware activity from that domain.. See  htxp://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/http://i2.lulzimg.com  Site with warnings, but not blacklisted according Sucuri's. As it is a Malaysian file multi-sharing site, who knows what may be out there? This is some background info that I could dug up so far,

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Like I have said before any sharing site, be that images or executables, etc. is liable to abuse, but is that a reason to block everything and for me the answer is no. That is why I believe live scanning is preferable to database checking.

Avast is still not letting me register free via the avast program. So I guess ill have to fill in Register for your free avast! 1 year license form.

Maybe a update can fix this prob :D

I doubt an update would make a difference if it is a server issue.

I can confirm that the 'Continue' button is broken in the latest version. So far I've installed it on 3 different machines (new Windows installs with no additional firewall software etc) and when I click Register it brings up a box with radio buttons. If you choose any of the paid versions and click Continue it fires up the default browser and takes you to the web page to purchase. If I choose 'Free' and click Continue it just sits there - no error messages nothing.
I had to download the previous version of 7 from File Hippo and install over the top, then register, then update.
