I submitted a ticket on Friday and I still haven't had a reply...anyone know how long they usually take to respond? The automated response to my ticket request doesn't specify response times, it just says:
Message from Avast:

Your case will be handled by Avast Customer Support staff, our licensing specialists.
Because it appears to be an urgent case, we will give it the highest priority. You should receive our reply as soon as possible.

Just an update to say that I finally did get a refund...however, this also came at a price:

"Please note that as a result of your refund, your Avast GrimeFighter - 3 users, 1 year license had been disabled, which, with regret, will stop your avast! antivirus from being updated.
The only way to rectify this issue is to purchase another license key."


Cheers Avast. So in other words "you can have your money back, but you still have to pay  :P".

I have avast internetsecurity,but no licence for grimefighter.......but guess what...suddenly when i start up my laptop ,before anything else i get a screen that says grimefighter will now put my laptop to sleep.
And it does.....a full coma.....nothing works anymore...no boot cd...no usb stick....no onekey recovery....absolutely nothing.
Got a ticket for help......by using another laptop, but nobody seems to know how to get rid of this grimecrap wich totally anhilliated my pretty new laptop.

Somebody??  any suggestions??

Strange, check the boot order in your BIOS.
