yes...... ;)  if you have a valid license for avast 4.8 pro you should get avast 5 pro for free

Maybe you should try a clean install, uninstall 4.8 > restart > run the removal tool found here as nr.1 http://uninstallers.blogspot.com/ > restart > install V5 > enter license key  from 4.8


How to uninstall our software using aswClear.exe:   http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility



.......and everything works....i hope... ;D

hi pondus

no luck this time
download was veryvery slow and when it finally finished my license key was rejected .So back to square one again I guess.

Thanks for your help
