Transferring license to new laptop
« on: December 19, 2012, 08:36:26 AM »
I've just purchased a new laptop - Acer with Windows 8. I already have a valid license - which expires in April 2012 - on my other laptop which I no longer use.
How do I transfer the license to my new laptop? Is it possible to do this?
My license is Pro!Antivirus.
I had McAfee pre intstalled on my new laptop but I uninstalled it.

Uninstall avast! from the old system and install it on new one. Apply license and you're done. You cannot use same license on 2 different systems unless if you purchased multi computer license...
