non-functioning product

I paid for a 2 year subscription, $56, 2 hours ago, downloaded, etc., and immediately was notified that "your subscription has expired and you are not eligible for updates." I have contacted them three times without reply. Get your money back through your cc -- not careful workers there. Get AVS instead.

$70.80 charge

I'm a female 76 years old, but use my computer to pay bills etc. My Norton Antivirus expired, and I do not have
the funds to renew. I accessed AVAST which I found out is free of charge, and when they offered renewals for
a very small portion that any other would be I agreed to pay in advance for renewal, and used my credit card.
I just found out a charge of $70.80 went thru for HQ.NET. and that, I did not authorized. What scam is being

I will not have the monies to renew my 89 year old husbands prescriptions.

Replace my money back to my bank account, as that was not something I authorized.

fraudulent billing

Recently I selected a website that appeared to be the Avast Anti-virus Software site. It indicated that I could purchase the Home Editon with one-year support for just over $12. I selected this option, entered my credit card info, etc. Then noticed that I was being billed for the 3-year support costing over $52. I was then instructed to click on a link to download the software. The next screen presented showed that I could have downloaded a free edition of Avast. Had I known about this in the first place, that would have been the option I would have selected. I later discovered that it was Software-HQ that I had ordered from - info shown on the website was misleading. They will not answer phone calls. They did respond to my email but did not address my complaint. Instead, they said my membership fee that I apparently had signed up for (unknown to me) was non-refundable.
