Just transfer the avast installer file to a usb stick and move to the other system then install straight over the top using the custom install again.

Thanks again, where is the clean up tool & how does one run it?

Don't you have software updater checked or have PSI for that?

Regards!
Clean tool is here http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avastclear.exe uninstall avast first if possible then run the tool, it'll ask to reboot to safe mode to complete it's task so accept this and follow the prompts.

I manually look after my software, no need for extra tools and processes :)

Clicked on uninstall in CP > Add/Remove > pop window opened displaying  > Go to Settings turn off all 3 web shields ( which I didn't do) it removed Avast & asked to reboot the machine.

On reboot I installed this new version with custom install, checked only SW updater!

The clean tool will automatically reboot the system into safemode for you :)

Not sure what VP is ???

If it's working correctly then leave it be but if your unhappy/ not sure about it then uninstall it, reboot and then run the tool, when its finished reboot the system again and install new avast in custom mode.

Secure line is a paid optional extra for use in public Wi-Fi environments to secure your browsing, it's up to you if you want it or not.
