i reffered Avast free, my 2 friends installed it using links. but my avast account is not telling me, there is yet 0(zero) referrals,

any one gained a copy of Avast Internet Security by referring??

@usmangujjar I have indeed, sometimes it may take a couple of hours or a day, before it's recognised as a referral. Patience. :D

Changed title.


Also i don't know if this is just me. But i test every beta of avast and it seems to kick butt every time. When the final release of the software comes avast just seems to go down hill again. I find avast beta's to actually be more aggressive against malware.
