As you may know, I prefer to recommend Avast Antivirus to protect your computer from viruses. It has many advantages over other antivirus programs, including the fact that it is free. Avast requires you to renew your subscription annually, and this is where the confusion lies. It can get tricky trying to renew the free version of your product, but there are a few simple steps you can follow to make sure your computer stays protected.
If your Avast license key has expired, all you need to do is go to Avast’s Official Website. Once there, click the “Support” tab at the top of the screen. This will direct you to a page that automatically features the free version of Avast. On the middle of that screen, there is a list of “Popular Actions,” which includes the option to “register to get license.” Click there to register, or click here for a shortcut, and remember to scan for viruses often.
