No problem. Remote service that you requested is an additional service, but it is a optional service. If you don't want it then we can continue here. Which program is it that you have installed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I already have Avast premier installed & I installed the free version, however I am unable to contact Avast through my account
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.

When you open avast, do you see it showing the free status?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.

If you right click the avast icon in the system tray, do you see an option called subscription information? (as shown in the image at the link below)

I don't see Avast in the system tray only on the desktop
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.

Did you buy avast online?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.

then the easiest way to deal with this issue is to simply uninstall and reinstall avast by logging into avast site and downloading the premium version again. I can do this for you if you like by remoting in within 5-10 minutes.
