Compare Profesional and Home Edition: http://www.avast.com/i_idt_1018.html

Home version is free. It's not a trial one. Just need a free registration for 14 months.
Trial Professional is available for 60 days.

No,its just for 60 days. You can reinstall it,but you'll get only one more week. Not worth trying. Home Edition can be re-registered every 14 months without any limitations.

After 60 days or you pay or you stay (downgrade) with the Home version...
Second installation of the trial, like RejZoR posted, only for more 6 days (it's the anti-piracy feature)  ;)

The problem with the cracks/keygens is that we're downloading them as well. And as soon as we have it, you can be pretty confident that it will not work after the next program update (i.e. avast will simply cease working). :)

From our perspective, having a program that can regularly update itself is a major plus in terms of fighting with piracy.

Just a question Vlk,

if someone  finds a keygen/crack that is still working does Alwil wants it to be send to them? Just as virus examples not detected/false positives.... And if so, where to send it to?

I think the same.
Vlk, can you detect if the same Registration Key is used in more than one computer?
You don't have to answer here, could use the IM  8)

Tech

I belive that when you update avast it checks your IP and registation code, if more then one computer is useing the same registation code, they simply disable avast (bit like nortan).

Also as vik said, they download the keygens/cracks themself, so there is probley some kind of blacklist on the avast server to block know (unligitimate?) registation codes.

IP's cannot be matched with serials,because there is lots of dynamic IP connection users.

Not to mention all those applications with which you can change your IP through various proxy servers every x minutes.
