Downloaded Free version/then purchased
« on: August 23, 2012, 06:14:03 AM »
Tonight I downloaded Avast free and thought it was a good program for me, so I purchased it.
Got my order confirmation, registration confirmation and registered on the forum as well.
I thought all was good when I downloaded the program.  They told me to start with number 5 in
the downloading process if I already had the free version. But there was no number 5! Downloading
just took off on its own.  Scanning has been great etc.. However, it keeps telling me that I only have
the program for 30 days? What the heck? I bought the program! So how do I fix this? Anybody?  :-\

Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

Which program version do you have: Pro or Internet Security?
After purchasing you must have received an email with your license file. Save the file to your computer --> open avast GUI --> Maintenance --> klick Insert license file --> insert license file. Now the additional files needed will be downloaded.
Here are direct downloadlinks:
avast! Pro Antivirus:
avast! Internet Security:

Win10 x64, APS (always latest version)
Avast Mobile Security (always latest version)
