Last year I got Avast internet security for a friend, A full paid for subscription for 12 months. Well as these things do it expired.
My big problem now is that Digitalriver just charged my credit card again without my consent for another 12 months subscription. WTF.
Members are advised to be extra carefull when dealing with Avast or DigitalRiver. They stole money from my account.

I did no such thing when I got the original subscription.
There is going to be hell to pay for over this. Everywhere I go every forum I am a member of I will warn others to not buy anything from Avast and its theaving puppet Digital River.
I am now the proud owner of 12 months subscrition to Avast I have no use for.
Maybe I can run it on Linux.
