Antivirus Updates

Hi I was wondering if avast! alerts you that you will need a new license key before your old one expires in the home version.

I think not.
Only if you buy avast! Professional version at ShareIt, this service will inform you that your license is at the end.

Only users of avast! Home with "Customer number"* <1 000 000 are currently informed by e-mail, others are informed only by program itself.
*Customer number is XXXXXXX in the license key - ZXXXXXXXZYYYYYYYYY-YYYYYYYY

I wasn't talking about e-mail notifications - the original question was "if avast! alerts"; so yes, I believe a notification popup should appear.

Licence for Antivirus Updates
« Reply #8 on: October 20, 2005, 03:00:24 PM »
Hi, I'm a little confused, I've got a message saying that my licence has expired.  Is the home version freeware or trailware?  Do I now need to buy the product?

You need to register for free, once a year. Here is the link: http://www.avast.com/3.php?lang=ENG , insert the registration code (that will be sent to you by e-mail) into the program & you're done.
