Avast support not answering me
« on: February 29, 2008, 04:49:45 PM »
I have sent an email to avast support asking them to resend my avast pro key as I lost my hard drive recently and had to re-install everything. I used the faq suggestion of re-registering and I got a reply but they are simply sending me a key for home edition and I purchased a 3 year pro subscription about 5 months ago. Any idea's on how to get them to actually answer me, instead of sending me an automatic reply?

Try sales @ avast.com (without the spaces), give as much information as possible, when you purchased, where (using avast.com and share*it on-line processing, avast distributor, etc.), what email address you used. With that hopefully they can track down your pro subscription.

Check your spam filter. It's possible that they have replied and the reply has been blocked. The couple of times I contacted them, the reply was prompt.

Paypal receipt?
Where did you make the purchase, exactly?

Avast support have been good to me in the past i admit but since the probs with 4.8 kicked off no one seems to want to know or care via email or on this board, i hate companies that do that.  My Subscription ends with them in September and im off to Nod32 then.

Did you not read oldmans's reply, I have found the same. He also got a reply on the forums to his first post within 25 minutes and a reply to his second post in under 5 minutes and a reply from Vlk early this morning (his time).

Yet almost 7 hours after his second post we have no reply from We are Borg, so I think the your comment of "know or care via email or on this board" is way short of the mark.

Did you not read Vlk's reply the avast on-line payment system (Share*It) doesn't use paypal as far as I'm aware, so I think Vlk's concern might be We are Borg has purchased from a fraudulent site. We are trying to help but it is a two way process.

No, Share*It provides possibility to buy Avast subscription via PayPal. At least this possibility was present 2 weeks ago.

Thanks psw, looks like a new option, which is quite good for those who don't want to give out their CC number and details over the net.

Sorry I have not replied immediately.....I am a busy man and although this is an annoying issue it is not life and death so excuse me if I only check for answers once a day. I emailed sales with a request for resolving this issue as was suggested here. I copied my transaction record from the paypal web site into my email and i have not received a reply. I check my spam folders everyday for emails that don't belong there and I also have the domain name avast in my safe senders list. I used the share it purchase portal and paid via paypal.....as far as I know there is no other way to buy it.

You used to pay by credit card. Like I said, they have been prompt with me. I don't understand it. Does your isp have a spam filter? That's where mine is.

Hopefully someone will let them know of your problem.

Have you tried sending using a different email account (different domain) to see if it is the ISP that has a filter, so you don't even see it arrive on your system for anti-spam filtering.
