I have just updated and on restart, I was offered the trial it clearly said Pay 0.00 at checkout, Enjoy 60 days on us,

Nothing about paying anything at the end of the trial.

I declined the offer and will continue with the free version which continues to get top reviews, for example, PC Pro latest issue rated it the best free AV.

my mistake FratPark..as pointed out by Mike.

They charge you if you want to keep it. I've stuck with the free edition like you anyway. I think if you click on the link for more info it says they will charge you if you keep it.

No way could they charge you without having your card details.

I`m with FratPark on this. Have used Avast Free Antivirus for years - an excellent program imho.
