The OFF-LINE forms as I understand should work for both Avast 5.0 and Avast 4.8, correct? The only off-line support to get your Avast license key has always said, "Fill out the form to get your free license key to 4.8." The website should be updated to indicate that this also works in Avast 5.0.
I think some users are confused getting misinformation that they can ONLY update 5.0 through an Internet Connection and that the e-mail registration form on the website only works in 4.8. Is the following correct?
A. ) Avast 5.0: On-line registration process through clicking on Maintenance UI within program and selecting registration. Fill out form to get 12-month license key, need to repeat every 12-months or should program need to be installed. ALSO.
B.) If Avast 5.0 registration fails: through the on-line program process, the license can be filled out by submitting the e-mail form through a valid e-mail address. Than after receiving license key, this key can be cut and pasted into the program.
Either A or B must be repeated after 12 months or should program need to be reinstalled.
Avast 4.8: Must sign up through registration form at Avast's website with valid e-mail address. License Key is sent to that address, than that key must be entered into the program by right-clicking on the Avast Ball, selecting "About Avast", by clicking the Registration tab and submitting for 12 months of protection.
License Key must be reentered should program need to be reinstalled. However, SUPPORT FOR 4.8 WILL END ON DECEMBER 31, 2010. In which case, users choosing to continue to use Avast, should, for best results, uninstall 4.8 and install version 5.0.
