Avast!: "Your updating license will expire soon" ??

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Avast! is issuing the following dialog every so often:
------------------------------------------------------
Your updating license will expire soon
------------------------------------------------------

This is the freebie home version.

Anybody know what the implications are - besides the obvious...

I guess it will stop working.

I thought the current license expired 1Q2007.  Is this the 60 day
trial  license your talking about??

Dunno.   I thought I had installed their home-use freebie.   Seems to me like
it's a lot more than sixty days.... but it's something to look in to.

Thanks.

Just browsed Avast's log files and there's no mention of this dialog being
issued.

Got it!

I was running a "Timed Demo" license - presumably the one that comes with the
download.

Once you register, they issue a license key just for you.   Sounds like I had
failed to enter that license key.     I clicked "Start Avast" somewhere (cannot
find it right now...) and it popped a descriptive dialog that told me what was
up and gave an opportunity to paste in the proper license code.
