Hmm, no tech support ?
They forget this webboard and the ticket system.

When going through the WOT reports we find it labeled as: "unethical, scam and potentially illegal".
See: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/www.windowsdeal.com?utm_source=addon&utm_content=contextmenu
(reports).
Some there say "good site with many giveaways"?

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

No details whatsoever... It also shows, Trustworthiness = Excellent and Child Safety = Excellent. So believe every opinion you read on the internet because all opinions are true.

Nothing better than people casting a shadow over something without any facts.

If anyone finds any REAL evidence of malice then post it.

I have strong doubts about the legitimacy of it.
Note that avast isn't offering such a long trial period, so where did the get they "trial license" for 180 days from ?

Again, no evidence.


You and the others have no more worries. The deal has expired.

Sharewareonsale had a similiar offer, I tried to take advantage of it but it reset me back to the free version as the offer was apparently only for new customers.

The OP in this Topic also speaks of this 180day trial although appears to be having issues.

Until I see a clarification directly from Avast, I'm advising those that have asked me about this to stay clear.
Something just doesn't smell right. Better safe than sorry. :)

I'll agree with bob here. Until Avast has clarified something its best to stay clear.

Thanks for all the evidence showing that this is an untrustworthy deal. All based on a hunch or because you have never heard of it or avast hasn't run it past you for approval.

I can't find any evidence where the site is untrustworthy. Can you?
