Ok, I've looked for answers to this, but have yet to find one that matches my exact issue. I've had this exact issue on my computer, my mother's computer, and 2 neighbor's computers.
Running Avast Free Version 6.0.1289. My free license is expiring, and it wants me to re-register. Fine, click on re-register now, and get the choose level page. All is good to this point.
Now, I just want to keep my FREE version, so I click on SELECT under base protection, and get nothing. It's selectable with the hand just as the paid version is, and it looks just like the initial install register page does.
Now, if I click on the PAID version, it takes me to the purchase page with no issue.
Having this happen once is bad enough, but I've now seen this EXACT behavior on 5 different systems. This is NOT cool. I realize Avast would like to see more paid subscriptions, but this reeks of being shady, the "free" link is broke, but the "buy now" one works?
I know I can manually register again, and I can remove/reinstall it, but this is an issue that needs to be addressed, why isn't the free option working?
