To temporarily disable the avast self defense module:
1. Right click the 'a' blue icon on system tray.
2. Programs settings > Troubleshooting (tab)
3. Disable self defense module

You should never disable avast while gaming... games should be scanned to avoid infections...

Do you mean the registration key? The demo period is only 60 days...
