[SOLVED] Avast! Home Edition Invalid Licence.
« on: April 26, 2009, 02:51:15 PM »
My Avast! Professonal Edition Trail Expired so I switched to Avast! Home Edition. Then I registered but it's invalid. :'(

Hi Donovansrb10!

Please edit/modify your first post and remove your license key... and possibly also make it invisible in the picture...
Its enough if you remove/(make invisible) the last part after the "-".

Also you can try to request a new license key, just like you got your first one...

That didn't work so I'm going with Bobo's Idea.
