To install avast there is no disc needed.
What are you trying to reinstall?
Where did you buy the avast license?

Sounds to me like you where scammed.
avast doesn't provide hard copies, only downloads.

I would say file a complaint at amazon.

Buying of Amazon or eBay (or similar sites) isn't a conventional way of purchasing - there is a high possibility of getting ripped off with a hacked license file that gets subsequently banned when it is checked by avast.

At this point you only have 2 alternatives.
Pay for a legitimate license or use the free version of avast.
Going from the payed version to the free version is very easy:

2 months?
That is already a huge clue that it is not a legitimate copy.

Contact Amazon and have them sort it out. They're usually quite helpful. If everything else fails just ask for your money back. Don't really understand why others here have a problem with Amazon selling software. They've been doing this for quite some time and there is no reason for it to be illegitimate.

You forget that there is a difference between Amazon and the "auction site" where everyone can sell things. The people who are complaining haven't bought anything from Amazon but from others.
