Title: reinstalling os
Post by: michaelgg13 on September 01, 2011, 07:12:31 PM
hi,
   i just bought a new motherboard and processor so i will be required to reinstall my os when the parts come today. I was just wondering if i can deactivate one of my 3 licences( the one im using) for when i reinstall avast on the fresh os install. or else i will lose my avast subscription for this pc. thank you!

You'll not lose your avast subscription. Keep the license file safe and reinstall it.

You don't have to deactivate it, you are allowed to have it installed on X number of systems at any one time (X being the number of licenses you have). So in cases like this is isn't the number of installs you have done, but the number of systems it is currently installed on and active getting updates, etcetera.

Provided you have saved your license.avastlic file, you can just use your license file again and it will give you the remainder of your license period.
