My serial number expired the other day. I won't renew for several reasons. For starters, I paid under $15 last year for the whole program, and the renewal now wants $49.95 just to extend the AV signature for another 12 months. Like ****.
At any rate, I noticed that I can no longer scan files/directories. WTH? So once the AV subscription expires the program disables the scanning? I mean sure, I don't expect any further AV signature updates after the expiration date, but I still expect to keep using the AV scanner using the definitions I have at the time it expired.
Again, I don't want to be able to download any further AV definitions, but I still should be able to manually scan files and directories (or drives) just like I was able to do before.
