Hi and thanks for the welcome! :)
Ive tried to "re-verify" it doesnt take my genuine code. It just sits there with some random code and a microsoft popup gives me the alternative to buy windows (again^^).
Can it be that my old a/v Norton got a messy uninstall? Maybe left a patrol in the registry?
Thanks again for the fast reply. Ill start searching for anything from norton in the registry that might be left while I wait. :)

Highly doubt that the removal of Norton or the install of avast has anything to do with your Genuine issue.
If you have a genuine Key and the online registration doesn't work, try the phone option or, try the following:
