On how many computers???
« on: March 22, 2004, 12:31:33 PM »
I have 4 computer at home and they are all connected to Internet at the same time.

On how many of my computer can I install Avast Home with the same activation key? If I should get for each a new key then how long do I have to wait before you can send a new key to the same mail adress?

Basically, you can use it on any number of computers in the same household.

I.e., provided the computers are under the same roof (and are used for home, non-profit purposes only) you can cater them all with the same reg key.

Hope this helps,

I have 2 computers. The first is on all the time the second is every day but not for long. The problem is that the automatic update dosen't work. When I plug in the second computer it can't be updated. I get a error. When take the computer to another network I can update. Can you explain why?

The error message:
Information about current update:
Last encountered error: Other HTTP error (0), while trying 66.98.196.85:80//iavs4x/servers.def

Total time: 33 s

Won't be a firewall issue?
Other programs can reach the Internet on that computer?  ;)

Other programs can access the Internet. And it isn't the firewall because the other computer gets the update.

I tried to uninstall and put another activation key, but it didin't help.  :(

Can you check the time/date of your system? Specially the year? Anything wrong?

Nothing wrong with the time/date.
