changing email address
« on: July 20, 2012, 05:15:21 PM »
I'm running Avast free addition on WinXP Pro SP3.  I want to change my email address for the downloads and for this forum.  Will someone please tell me how to change *both* of them?  My old email address is about to expire and I have to use the new one.     Thanks. 

Henry

I would remove the emails from the post unless you like spam, as this is a publicly available forum so it could get harvested.

Downloads of what, I don't know of any downloads that are email required ?

You should be able to change your profile settings, email address soon 20 posts is a requirement to make certain profile changes. Though I'm not sure if you would be able to change email sooner, check the Profile, Account settings and see if you can access the email field.

I can access the account settings, but it will only let me change my password. There is no way to change the email address.

One more post should do it, strange that it will allow a password change but not the email address.

Hover over the huge Profile button at the top of the page, select Account settings.

Man I'm dumb.  When I open  Avast! User Interface, all I see is   Share   Support   and Settings at the top.  I was there once and now I'm lost.

Henry is not Avast! UI you have to open. It is Profile at the top of the forum page. Just under your avatar.
