Invalid License Key
« on: May 07, 2011, 07:05:45 PM »
My license key recently stopped working for some reason (it was supposed to expire in 2012). I was just uninstalling useless applications, I restarted my PC, and a window telling me Avast! has expired popped up. I cannot remove any viruses, insert a license key, or update without getting SOME kind of of error.
I honestly don't care about updating; I just want this "invalid license key" crap to stop.
My date and time is correct. This is just a screen shot of all my info ----v

It's pretty screwed up. I have no idea how it happened.
"Last update attempt: 12/30/1969"?? :(

Yes, I did try signing up after this happened, obviously. This is the email I received:

Dear avast! user,
 
Your registration of avast! free antivirus was successful. Your license key must now be inserted into the program.
 
 
Your license key is:
 
---------- cut here ----------
XXXXXXXXXXXXX-XXXXX
---------- cut here ----------


I've been through this whole signing-up process many times, and all the keys have worked.
When I try uninstalling/repairing/changing Avast!, nothing happens. No windows pop up or anything.
When I try closing any processes for Avast! in my control panel, it tells me "The operation cannot be completed. Access is denied."


I have a x64, Toshiba (Satellite L505D) Windows 7 Home Premium (version 6.1.7600 Build 7600) <--- if this matters?

Remove your key from the forum!
Also, see avast is showing your year in 1969.
Also, this is the avast for PDA forum :'(

Please remove the licence as it could be used by others.

Check the system date, day/month/year and correct as required.

Looks like your BIOS battery might be on its way out as I believe that date 1969 would be the default start dare if it was reset.

Did you read our posts? ;D
Please, upload (attach) the avast log:
C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log\Setup.log
or C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5\Setup\setup.log

If the file is too big for the forum, post the last 400-500 lines of it.

Yes, of course o.o I've been using Avast! for years, but I sometimes switch off to another version, life IS or something, because it's very very glitchy :/
