I use Avast Free so don't really have this issue, but I still have to register it and that is essentially linked to my avast account.

How is it (Avast) to know the product you have installed is a licensed paid product that you are using.  If you have a multi license product, the account is how it keeps track of the numbers.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.4.6062 (build 23.4.8118.762) UI 1.0.762/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

A product can be tracked via the activation code.

When you register Avast you are given the choice of using an
activation code or an Avast account.

AVG is the same. I have always used an activation code.

Oddly, a day ago I got that very pop-up saying that my product
isn't linked to my account. It is the first and only time I have
had that message in 3 years of using AVG Internet Security.

Why it appeared now all of a sudden is a mystery.

Actually, the message I got MAY have said that my PC isn't linked to
my account. Pity I didn't take a screenshot of it.

The PC is the same one being used for the past year and a half
without anything having to be linked to an Avast account.

I use AVG Internet Security (paid), Avast Secureline VPN (paid),
and Avast Secure Browser (free).
