Hey, my Avast popped up yesterday telling me that my registration would expire. I clicked to renew my registration (free), but that option was grayed out and the only thing I can click on is the upgrade (pay) option. Has anyone run into this?

I might wait out the registration to see if the free button magically works or I'll just uninstall/reinstall this shit.

I'd also like to hear if other antivirus programs are better in your opinion and why.

Thanks!

Microsoft security essentials. Easy on resources, free, and I've never had an issue. That with the free version of malwarebytes and you're set.

I'd just do a complete uninstall and then do a fresh install with a new registration. Then you're good for another year. Don't use AVG, because it is kind of buggy as of late.
