avast 5.0 registration key code
« on: February 14, 2010, 12:10:10 AM »
i have been using avast 4.8 HOME (free) since last december. i still have my registration key code.

i have a laptop (connected to internet) and desktop (not connected to internet.) on the lap top i download off-line virus definitions weekly and run a scan that way.

to upgrade for 4.8 to 5.0 is easy on the laptop. if i were to download Avast HOME 5.0 and install on my desktop..could i use the same registration key code from my 4.8 version?

i know i could download a new version and get a new registration code but it would be nice to have the same one...one less thing to keep track of.

thnx
