I downloaded AVG for the first time a few days ago and was e-mailed a registration number that is completely different from anything given above. I suspect that the e-mailed ones are specific for individual clients to tie registrations to the mandatory personal info supplied.

14-01-2003, 11:53 AM
Yes, AFAIK they are randomly generated.. I have used my same home key on 4 different downloads (I kept forgetting to save the installer) and also at work.

They keys I believe have a certain pattern to them and are not 1 off hard-coded keys :)

14-01-2003, 09:28 PM
>es, AFAIK they are randomly generated.]

well the X-FREE one i posted has been the same for the last 2 years and going by a few other sites/forums its the same for everyone (as i far i can tell) which is why i was interested about babes keys. this is the first time i have seen people mention other keys. however if my rusty memory serves me correctly about 3 years ago avg change their way of doing the keys, so it is possible the old keys where different.

14-01-2003, 09:47 PM
I think you're right :)

14-01-2003, 09:50 PM
I have got a completely different one


I no longer use AVG, so if you want to try that one, go for it

15-01-2003, 09:06 AM
Hehehe *Chuckles*

Why not start a huge pool of AVG keys... Or not ;)

I think they use that so that they can keep a bit more or a list of how many downloads/sign-ups they've had. :)
