AVG... trouble activating forum membership

Is any one else having problems as I am, despite both clicking on the link and also copy pasting it. This is what I see

No problems here. I just right click AVG icon in system tray, select 'AVG Free - Online Services' and it takes me to click here where I can continue to the Free Forum.

Someone had problems with this before an the only way that he could fix it was to re-register using a different password.

For some reason I could not believe I had not been a member. I managed to find the old registration details and with a lot more searching update them.

I'm very red faced.
