For the record, AIS on a customer machine up for renewal soon. Here's "the dreaded" reminder.
There is a way that seems right to a man,
       but in the end it leads to death

Same on the free version 28 reminder, Red should only be used for alerts, as per the Pop-up colour scheme. It should be Blue for informative or Orange for Warning, but certainly NOT Red.

Bullfighters use a red cape to annoy a bull into a rage, so no, this is not an appropriate color to use.  Blue would be more peaceful and (feeling-wise) cooler as well. 

Could be that setting (which is not modifiable as far as I know) is setting some users off unnecessarily.  Do agree that the settings for renewal notices could be handled a little better tho, say, set to appear one or two weeks before the need to renew needs to be done.  One month (30 days) early is really too soon, and a way to take care of infrequent computer use is to post an email to the user in their email box ahead of time would help and be a gentler way to do it.

What I do  is simply renew the free subscription on the first day of the nags, and only lose thirty days of the old subscription.  In return, I get another 11 months of protection as things now stand. 

I think that is one of the unaddressed issues here, is that the subscription is supposed to be for one year, but in reality, never is.   ???

Well, yes and no. With no valid subscription, you also don't get most of the protection. That includes free version as well.
