Avast having problems? Forum? Secure Line?

by layanaicy / August 28, 2014 1:34 AM PDT

Last night I had 21 hours left of my trial on Secure Line. I wanted to use it for 2 hours and decide today how much longer to renew for. Well I couldn't connect to any location. It just kept saying Connecting....

Tried to get to Support...nothing would load. Now today it's the same thing. Can't load anything in the Support tab in the interface. Can't get to the forum at Avast through Google.

I got the popup again to renew my SecureLine but now I'm afraid to even try. Anyone know what's going on?

Could be many things. Did you happen to be on Time Warner?

Their system is having issues. Also when I have an app fail, I usually uninstall it.

Here's the support page

with telephone number => http://www.avast.com/en-us/total-support

When these things expire they won't let you do anything so I always uninstall them or system restore to a time before you installed it.

Must have just been a glitch
by layanaicy / August 29, 2014 3:29 AM PDT

I do have Time Warner but everything else on my PC was working normally. It must have just been a connection problem though with Avast because now I can get to the forum from the interface, from the links on Google and from the one posted here. So I think if not for some glitch with connecting, I could have finished out my trial period. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't a SecureLine problem since I plan to extend for 2 years and also I was having problems connecting to some parts of Avast.

Thanks both for the replies.

Anti virus not responding

I think you need to reinstall the software. Firstly the version has been expired and don't miss to update the anti virus time by time.
