Spam Email re Avast Registration?
« on: September 04, 2012, 08:56:51 PM »
Got an email from "avast Antivirus [sales@email.avast.com]" about a month ago stating that my registration would expire in 30 days.  Figured it was a spam so ignored it.

Today I got an email  which states that my registration expires in 48 hours.  Checked my registration expiry and it says I have 143 days remaining.

Background - about 8 months ago I had a problem (no shields) that I could only fix with a complete uninstall/reinstall which I did and then re-registered.

So, is this someone phishing or what?

I believe the reminder comes via the information on your https://my.avast.com account, so I would check if that information is correct.

If not delete the device from the account and then connect again from your avast program.
