avast registration invalid on XP pro
« on: September 08, 2004, 07:44:40 PM »
ok.... i downloaded avast4 home a few weeks ago, installed it, did a startup scan, and deleted all virii, trojans and worms.... had system problems afterwards, so i backed up, did a full re-install and re-downloaded avast4.
it worked fine, until i registered, at which point it told me the registration code was old, and refused to download updates..... i'm using XP pro sp1 on a P4 2.6ghz with 512 mb ram and 80 gb HD.... little help?

Did you requested a new key?
Did you reinstall the os or did you do a clean install?

i backed up all my software, reformatted the hard drive and installed the system from scratch... downloaded avast, and requested a new key..... it was working until i entered the key, now it won't update :(.

Looks like somehow the key wasn't correct. Have you tried to get another one and tested it with that key?

Don't you happen to have incorrectly set the system clock?
Like a one year shift? (year 2005).

Thanks

Can you send me the key?
I doubt it's invalid, it must've been something else. ;)
