There is no legal license beyond 3 years, ever!

if your new computer came with a license till 2038 I can tell you now that would have been a cracked license key as the maximum licensing period is 3 years.

You need to download a new clean version of avast and install it after first removing your cracked version and Norton.

Most cracked / hacked versions have been created with embedded code, maybe for spying, maybe for infection or keylogging (who? hacker, organised crime, terrorists!)   avast! will disable them as soon as they know they exist.  When purchasing the software from avast!, you know you are getting a clean version!  J.R.
