Re-activate license


I had to re-install AVG, because my AVG suddenly didn't recognize my license anymore. I deleted AVG from my laptop and installed the latest version, which I donwloaded from the following link: www.avg.com/eu-nl/download

I now have a trial version, but I want to re-activate my license. I bought a 2 year license for 'AVG-Antivirus Professional Single editon' in October 2014. I can't find where to re-activate my license. I only see the option to buy a new license. The look-and-feel of AVG is totally different from my previous version (2013), it's called AVG Zen now.

Where can I re-activate my license in this new UI. The instructions in the e-mail with my code says that I have to click on 'options'. However, I don't see the option to re-activate when I click on options.

Can you please help me with this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Jorge BriersJorge Briers
I looked up my subscription in my avg account. When loggin in Ican see in 'My order history' that I bought a 2year license 1 year ago. But in my current subsciptions this is not visible.

Jorge, Link (http://www.avg.com/eu-nl/download) [Scroll Down]. In actual fact I think that you should have downloaded the AVG AntiVirus 'BETAALDE VERSIE'.

Hi Alan,

I'm quite sure that I selected the 'betaalde versie'. Do you have any idea how I should proceed now? Because I can't find the option to activate my existing license.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Ok I see, maybe I installed a wrong version. I'll try deleting the current version and re-install the 'Antivirus' version. Because they are not compatible.
Hope this will work.
