    They start when you activate them, so you can hold on to them for a while, if you like.

    Check Amazon UK for cheap AVG 2-year deals. They are going mental on the 2-year prices at the moment.

    Plenty of one year, one PC OEM licenses on ebay for around £5 (from reputable dealers).

    There are also four PC, two year deals for around £28.

    Just stick to reputable sellers.

    Was looking for two year deals last month and could not find a digital download at a bargain price. I ended up buying one license with four seats for one year. I needed 3 seats, and a friend paid a portion of the purchase price for the fourth seat.

    I am in USA and bought from a UK online retailer. It was a digital download, and I had the license within 5 minutes of purchase.

    True. You can buy from any UK or US digital download store and the code will work fine in the States.

    but for some reason the digital downloads are more money right now than the mailed versions was my point with that

    Some are, some aren't.

    One reason some digital downloads are more expensive is that with boxed software, you get "end of life" products. For example, where software is due to be replaced by a new version, so the distributor or retailer reduces the price of the current version in preparation.

    The other reason is that customers still prefer to buy from traditional stores. Distributors who handle boxed software (on behalf of the retailers) can commit to thousands of product, thus obtaining the best price from the developer. With digital downloads, the retailer generally buys direct from the developer and in a much smaller quantity, thus the discount is smaller.

    There are good digital deals out there though and I do not mean on eBay.

    Just for you zfactor:

    Note that the 4-PC version of AVG Internet Security 2011 is a special retail version, which sits between the 3-PC and 5-PC license.
