That means that the current Number is the 60 day free trial of the Pro version.
Did you try doing it in safe mode as the administrator?

Reboot, hold f8 to start in safe mode.
Right click avast! icon in system tray and go to "about"
enter key there an see if it accepts it.
Then reboot normally

I'd try safe mode first ..... it doesn't bite!

If you do download and try again, disconnect from the net before un-installing and re-installing  :o

No You would wind up with only a few days of use. Right now you have 60.
Follow what inthewildteam said.  Reboot and then Keep pressing the F8 key and select safe mode.
