You don't say what version of avast that you have, so I will assume it is the free version, given the topic title. Nor do you say what version number the latest version just released yesterday is avast 2014, see http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=136785.0.

If you have avast 8.0.1497 latest avast 8 version, you can't re-register early. The Registration interface doesn't change until there are 28 days left of your registration remaining.

If you update from avast 8 to avast 9 (2014) using the avastUI program update it will retain the settings and registration days remaining. If you actually want to register early, you could of course download avast 2014 and do a clean install of that, you would then need to register.

My current registration expiration date will expire on March 8th, 2014. I have 144 days left before it expires. Is it OK to renew my license before it expires less than 100 days? Or will it be a program update for version 9 for renewing all registration expiration dates?
Which version of avast! are you running ???  Pro, Suit, Premier or Free ???
