When uninstalling the Free Avast, I see the following:

If I read correctly, accepting this offer will mean I'll never need to re-register
my copy of Avast Free. :)
(I'm sure that doing a clean install of Avast Free would be an exception to this.)
Please correct me if I'm wrong. :)

I remember there was a post some months ago where was stated that avast was thinking of removing the need to get a new license every year.
By the looks of it, it is now doing it automatically.
