Today, I still have 99 days left until my subscription for Avast! Free Antivirus expires on March 8th, 2018. I hope all my programs and files wouldn’t get infected on my computer ever again. Hope this helps me. It will automatically update my subscription after it expires.

Nothing has changed since your last post, the program should continue protecting your system.

I still have 89 days left until my subscription for Avast! Free Antivirus expires on March 8th, 2018. What if I need to wait some more time every day before my antivirus software will automatically change my expiration date after it expires?

As is being seen in the forums this is a very haphazard issue, for a program that supposedly no longer requires registration, it sure looks like it does.

Hoverer, this is a bridge you don't have to cross at any time soon.  You would get notifications before that time comes, exactly when I don't know as I have never got a notification.  As I have said even if you do get them and the expiry date does come, avast free will still continue its protection and will eventually update the registration.

Well, it’s about time when Christmas and 2018 are coming soon from now on. I have still 75 days left until my subscription for Avast! Free Antivirus expires on March 7th, 2018. I wonder if newer updated version of Avast! Free Antivirus can update the subscription for a new expiration date for me after it expires. No worries at all. Thanks for your continued support.

On my computer, I keep checking my Subscription tab for Avast! Free Antivirus every day to make sure how many days left until my subscription expires on March 7th, 2018. It is true that updated versions of Avast! Free Antivirus can update my expiration date for my subscription for me after it expires in one year. That’s why it is very useful to activate the antivirus software after expiration for my subscription. I sure hope that my files and programs won’t get infected on my computer ever again.

Your question has been answered many times, now you sit back and wait, you don't have to check every few days and post again.

At the earliest you would see anything would be around 28 days before and even than as has been answered it will eventually renew/allow activation button.

Well, I still have 49 days left until my registration for Avast! Free Antivirus expires on March 8th on my computer this year. It seems to me that I did a great job on scanning my computer for viruses every day. From the past few years, I will re-activate my anitvirus software after it expires, like I did from May 2016. Hope this helps.

But it still doesn't need constant reference in the forums, that isn't going to change how it will renew. 

One of my systems has about 24 days left, I have no need to cross that bridge for at least 25 days, when I will see exactly what happens with this relatively new policy.

My avast free license renewals countdown got to 12 days (11 full days remaining), at which point I choose the Avast Free Antivirus option to renew avast free.

Image 1:  Notice to renew - select avast free antivirus.
Image 2:  Shows you have activated avast free - do not select 'Continue With Upgrade - close that window using the 'X' top right of the window.
Image 3:  Shows that my subscription has been renewed, now at 376 days, remaining plus 1 year.

I wonder if I could renew my expiration date for my subscription for Avast! Free Antivirus on my computer with 34 days remaining before it expires on March 7th this year. When am I going to do before it expires in what day? Just curious.

You can do a clean install of Avast at any time and at that time register it.

If you need additional help with the Clean Install, watch this:

There is no renewal before your current expiration date.
Just learn to have some patience. It isn't necessary to post almost daily on the same topic that's already
been battered around endlessly. :)

I have thirty days left until my subscription for Avast! Free Antivirus expires on March 7th this year. I’m always good and patient about renewing my antivirus software on my computer. I can’t wait to re-activate my antivirus software to make sure my computer is protected. Thanks for appreciating with me. =)
