You can update to Avast! 5 Pro :)

Greetz, Red,.
Thanks for your suggestion.

But that will cost money, right?

My problem is that I don't have enough money to buy sth else.
So, what i can use is the free version.

Thus, should i update 4.8 professional into 5.0 free version?





carlcc,

I just upgrade my v4.8 pro to v5.0 pro withouth cost anymore money. Just use to old key, but you need to get a file .license from avast to revoke it. If your key still valid obviously, you can get v.5 for "no more cost" :)
Really?
Sounds great.

So how should I do?
Just go to the website and download the professional 5.0 verstion
and just install it?

Or do i need to uninstall the original?

Thanks a lot!

carlcc,

Yes, download the pro v.5 version to your computer from www.avast.com;

I suggest clean install, but there should be okay just with upgrade (not sure because I use clean install).
If you chose to do clean install, do not forget to create system restore first. Uninstall avast 4.8 from control panel, or use avast uninstall utility (more safe), get it here: http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

After uninstall - reboot your system. Then install avast v.5.

To get your subscription active again. Take a look to avast GUI >> Maintenence >> Subscription - there would be an option to use our avast 4.8 valid key. Click it! Then it should take you to: http://www.avast.com/resend-license.php

Please fill the form with your valid data. Then avast will send a file (.license) to your mailbox. Use it to activating avast 5 pro :)

Good luck.

Thank you very much.
Your really do me a favor!

I still have some questions because i'm really an outsider of computer.

You mean that it's free to use professional 5.0 version by filling a form which includes my demographic information or sth?
cuz' I remember that only home edition is free.

Professional 5.0 version is not free, but you paid already ;) By buying Avast 4.8 Pro, you didn't buy the 4.8 version, you bought a license for Avast Pro versions, so you already paid for every new version :)

I still use WIndows98 with much pleasure. How long can I use 4.8 free?
Thanks for the time you provided Avast free for w98.
