Windows 7: Avast! showing that I didn't activate the trial, but I had the free..?

Avast! showing that I didn't activate the trial, but I had the free..?

Recently, I just updated Avast! (the FREE one) to the new version because it didn't work properly. That fixed the problem. After 2 or 3 weeks, Avast shows this:


I have been using Avast! Free for years now. I didn't upgrade to the pro version or anything. It also says "Avast Pro Antivirus" at the top of the Avast window.
Any ideas on how to fix this? I want the free Avast! free version, not the trial of the pro version.

If you were using the free Avast! and didn't upgrade to PRO, then you won't lose anything by uninstalling Avast, downloading the Avast cleanup tool from their site and running it to clean all the left in crap, and then installing Avast! free again from scratch.

You might have accidentally clicked the wrong button. They make it that way for a reason. Just follow Heyyou's advice that should take care of the issue.

What Avast cleanup tool? I can't find it on their website. Can you please give me the link to it?

I know necroposting isn't recommended in any way, but if somehow your problem still wasn't solved, I can recommend you this: click here. It's a year-long Avast trial, for FREE. Legally. Not spam!
Avast is obviously the most powerful antivirus, and that's why I recommend you try this.
