Cannot enable Avast
« on: March 22, 2013, 04:59:05 PM »
I installed Avast 8 (trial), but all its services are disabled and cannot be enabled. How to fix ?
(I used aswclear to uninstall the previous version before installing the new version)

BTW, it says the subscription has 0 days left (I was using a license file my colleague gave me).

Does he use this license file, too?

I think, it's a license for 1 PC! ::)
