Precious,

Okay, try this link, which I believe contains removal instructions http://www.pchell.com/support/smileycentral.shtml

Cheers,

Beaky

Hi guys, yes, you're right... :-\

Our keygen robot generates "invalid" keys since midnight Jan 1, 2005 European time. It's sort of a "Y2K5 bug" ;)

We apologize for the inconvenience.
We'll be sending out fixed keys later today.


Thanks
Vlk

There seems to be a little problem with the generation of keys. Please have a little patience and try to get a new key later on.

If you install Avast and don't put a key in it, it will automaticly function as a trial version. Nothing special for the user to do.

Hi chaps

I've just downloaded Avast today (was recommended by a friend) and I am having the same problem with "Invalid Regisitration key" message

I take it that I can still use it as a trial version and enter the correct key later ?

Yes, the trial version will work for 60 days, but the problem should be fixed way before the end of that, when the License  keys get 'fixed' and you have a valid key, right click the avast "A" icon (next to your system clock) and select 'About avast...' , then a box will appear, then click 'License Key' at the bottom, and paste/type in your License key in the small box that appears.

I've tried to use it by saying that I don't have a valid registration key but it then just closes and won't do anything?

I don't like the idea of not having any anti virus software on my computer, especially as I have just changed my hard drive for the 3rd time because of faulty ones  ::)

Off I can't register. I have deleted Norton for Avast. It's a great surprise for me. I can't register, I haven't got a anti virus program. :(

When can I register? I can't select demo mode. Please don't say select demo.

So therefore any reg key you try to get at the moment will not work, so i suggest that you keep checking back here until the problem is resolved by the avast team, then forgo the steps mentioned above.
They will either email you the Valid keys from the email addresses you provided while registering, or they will simply ask you to re-register.

Ok then please e-mail me when it works. I read many good things about avast. I really wish to try and protect my computer with avast.

Long Live Avast!

Please try reregistering now.

It should be fixed and you should receive a valid key (a different one than during the previous registration attempt; namely, the previous key had 0007 just before the dash - and the new one should have 1106).

Let me know if it works.

Thanks
