Hi, All. I have downloaded Avast 5.x. It has a free two month trial licence. I have also got the 'key' for a 12 month licence. However. because it is currently 'Registered' i cannot find where to insert the 12 month licence key. Do i have to wait till the trial licence expires before inserting the 12 month key? Avast's 'help', doesn't! Cheers.

Just prior to the trial period ending Avast will remind you and ask you to insert a key.

Recent opinion in this forum seems to suggest that Avast has become a little less efficient over time and most are now going for Microsoft Security Essentials - it's free and had great reports. There's a thread somewhere near the top of the forum dedicated to MSSE - worth a read.

I'm with SP8's, use Security Essentials.

Usually whats happened in the past is when Avast email you your key to enter in, it also includes instructions on right-clicking the spinning A-Icon in the systray and then entering it.
