The password you posted also worked for me but it just delays the problem. Your password just gives one more year so what do we do then? The password given by Avast when used results in about 5 minutes of Free Avast indicating nothing is working before it starts up. Is the X over the icon misleading and the program is actually running? Can the password you gave be used next year and if not what do we do then?

I can't use a new version of Free Avast as my CPU can't handle the new code in Avast.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Next year, you renew it again for another year using that same password.

it probably won't work, but don't worry about the key, we protect you even when expired and the program autoregister itself after 10 days of expiration..

Mine expired today. The registration button is redundant.

I'm using XP, SP2 and Avast 9.

Although you have the Banner in the UI that you are unprotected.   
What does the Avast Tray icon say if you hover the mouse over it ?

You may have to wait to see if the 10 day auto registration kicks in.

" Warning - Your system is unsecured . "


You mean I have no antivirus for ten days ?

This is very awkward.

And that red tape - Capcha, question, just to post in this forum
is really awkward too. I've never come across so many barriers
in any forum on the net.

I can never read what all these silly Capchas show. The one
here looks like some kid's kindergarten artwork.

That isn't what I said, you get the warning, however the underlying protection should still be running.

You can check the Task Manager and see what Avast processes are running.
See attached image from my XP Pro SP3 system, whilst it is SP3 and a later version (so the processes will be different), you should be able to get an idea of what the Avast processes look like.  They generally have Avast or asw at the start of the file name.

If Avast was in fact not running or disabled, then you would also be getting alerts from your OS.

Coming back to this old post.

It's expired again, waiting for the 10-day auto-renewal.

There is NO web shield and file shield - the shield scanner
is totally inactive.

This was confirmed by looking at the statistics history
- there has been totally no web shield activity since
April 18, when it expired.


Frankly, rather than letting it autorenew every one or two
months, then expire leaving the user unprotected for
ten days till the next renewal - why not just go back
to the old system - give the user a one year licence,
let him manually renew it, then get protected immediately
after that ?

Effectively this is how it is (especially in the older versions of Avast), you get one years and you have to renew (even though avast are saying there is no requirement).

So why you're getting a renewal notification (if that is really what you are getting) I don't know, but I suspect not based on your first post Reply #144 on 06 July 2019

So it shouldn't be required until 06 July 2020 (if you managed to renew at that point), so something else is going on.

This may be a program related problem as your shields should still be working (as mentioned previously) even if the registration was expired.

I suspect this may be more to do with your OS version (why not move to XP SP3) and Avast version 9.  Are you able to update to XP SP3 which would probably allow you to update to Avast 10 or possibly later.

There are so few people using XP SP2 and Avast9 for anyone to be able to remember its interface and actions.

When you're the only one still using that model of your antique car,
getting help to fix the old buggy is very unlikely.
Unless you manage to fix it yourself, you'll most likely need to upgrade to a newer model.
