Hi,

Today I received notification that my free version of Avast expires in 12 days but when I navigate to the 'Select your security level' window which shows 'Avast Free Antivirus' on the left and 'Avast Internet Security' on the right, the grey 'Select' button does not show at the foot of the 'Avast Free Antivirus' column.  Instead, where the 'Select' button should be, there is a text box showing the words "Your current free protection".

Can I expect this text box to change to the 'Select' button before my 12 days run out?

Thanks.

Hi Asyn,

Thanks for your post and the link contained.

Unfortunately it does not help me - the 'Select' button referred to in section B of the final post in the link just does not appear in my setup at the moment.  As I indicated in my first post, where you would expect to find the button there is text stating "Your current free protection".  I'm hoping that, as I get closer to the deadline, the 'Select' button will appear.  I'd be grateful if you or other experienced members of the forum could comment on whether this is likely.

Thanks and regards.

Did you installed AV recently or you are already using it a year?

Hi Martin,

My present registration has been in place for 12 months although, overall, I've been using Avast Free for a few years now and don't recall facing this issue at the end of a registration period before.

UPDATE (Situation Resolved)

A notification from Avast appeared in my latest startup.  The message reminded me that my current registration expires in 12 days - the 'Select' button was available for Avast Free and worked correctly so I am now registered for a further 12 months.
