I'm not quite sure ??? But there will be a free version too, maybe they would ask us to make a new key for the free version as they was using to build a statistic just like on ver. 4, or we may use the old key.

But for the pro version, I remember read somewhere around about this forum, but can't find it again :(

Maybe this topic would help you: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=47133.0

Yes, it will be valid when Version 5 is released.

From the avast! blog:

Quote from: Vlk
As usual, all customers (or users) with a valid avast! subscription will get a free upgrade to this new version.

avast! blog >> avast! 5 is coming... soon!

ok.
What is if I reinstall 4.8 and then install version 5... or in general case: what will happen if I uninstall my Avast and then install it new? The licence stay in my system? Or it will be removed also but then I can type the code again, and the version will be activate again? Or my linence code will not be valid any more after reinstall?

If i'd known I would have answered it...
As far as I'm aware there was no official announcement on this, so I'd assume it is the same for now...

As far I know, the registration process did not change. It will still be possible to use a 4.8 key and yes, you'll need a key.

The licence stay in my system?
If there isn't an special process on avast 5 setup, no, the key is not saved. You'll need to insert it again (or a new one).
The best things in life are free.

Paid users should be able to use their license key on avast 5 with no problem.
It is not possible to divide anything by zero
