Thanks,

Open the Update tab of settings.
Choose Details.
Click on the Registration link.
In the webpage, choose Register and add your email there.
Back to avast settings, click on 'Enable' and 'Add information about the performed action'.
Be sure your Internet Mail provider is running.
Wait for the next push update  :)

Hi,

Luckily I am already subscribed to iAvs e-mail. So I didn't need to make any changes!

Only for 60 days because I cannot purchase avast! pro because I cannot purchase anything online. That is why I posted a request at the topic below.

Why are avast! updates set to expire April 1, 2013 but the program May 19, 2006? Makes no sense to me.

May 19, 2006 ... maybe because that is when your 60-day trial program ends?    ;)

Edit:

I guess my point is ... if the trial program ends before the updates, what does it matter? You have updates good until long after the program expires.

But, maybe I am missing something.    ???

What does it mean that the program will expire. What happens when it expires? As you can tell it will let me get updates until 2013 but what happens when the program itself expires?

It can't be updated.
In theory, only virus database could be updated from that time.

hmmm that is still strange. Why would it give me 60 days for the trial but let me update for 7 years??? Even if nothing happens after the 60 days and the program still functions perfectly (unlikely but I really don't know what will happen now) I would still not keep it without a license because I would not steal from Alwil software.

Hi,

I am currently testing avast! Pro.

If you are only testing, then of course it will expire. You even say this yourself ...

You can not update for 7 years because the program will expire in 60 days ... the date in the future is irrelevant. After 60 days, I am sure the Pro trial will revert to Home unless you have bought a Pro license/registration.    :)

I think it is to do with the fact that it is a Pro/Timed Trial version as the home Program expiration is 'never' but updates do expire and you have to re-register. When you purchase a new Pro license, you get the updates also.

However, as Tech said "April 1, 2013 makes no sense for me too..." there is definitely something wrong with that.

The problem may be that the system date has somehow been changed and avast has an anti-piracy check if the system date changes then I think you end up with 7 days not 60.

You might want to see what avast authorised distributors are in the USA you might be able to purchase another way through one of them.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.5.6116 (build 24.5.9153.762) UI 1.0.808/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

No, the Pro features will be disabled and the program will be downgraded to Home version.

No, I changed my system date. The program would not open. It just asked for a license key. But regardless I said if it were to happen.
