Unable to register Avast or connect to www.avast.com

by dennisnlefty / December 31, 2011 3:16 AM PST

I downloaded Avast from CNET this morning to my IBM T41 running XP. All appeared fine until I attempted to register, I see no results to clicking the Register Now button, and I still see "Not yet registered" displayed. The 3 options in Avast.Help (Support Center, Forum-register, and Submit a ticket) each return "This program cannot display the web page" Unplugged Wild Blue modem, router and rebooted laptop. No change to the above. I am unable to connect to www.avast.com, although I have no problem connecting to other sites and my7 wife can connect to www,avast.com on her computer. She has Avast installed from years ago and is connected via the same router.

Thanks for input.

registration key

Hello. Sorry, my English is not advanced. I want to know how can I get registration key for Avast 6.0.1367. I downloaded Avast and I registered with some problems, but did not receive this key by email. I use this program with much success and thank you, AVAST. I know from friends that such a key is required. Please guided me how I can get It. It is posible may no longer need it?
Thank you!

Do you still have this problem?

Sorry for the delay.

Do you still have this problem?

What happens if you type www.avast.com into your browser's address bar and hit Enter? Any error messages?

What happens if you click this link? http://www.avast.com . Any error messages?

What browser are you using, and have you tried other browsers?

Does this computer have any other anti-virus suites installed?

Do not have this problem today, did yesterday. I have successfully registered.
I installed with Chrome then tried Firefox with the same failed results before posting.
There are no other anti-virus suites installed.
