After reformatting the HDD: now what?
« on: September 09, 2014, 05:56:25 PM »
The machine was plagued with crap so I finally gave up, reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled Win 7.  I had a couple of purchased Avast antivirus programs installed originally on the machine.  Now how do I get them back on there?

Yes that caught my eye, thought possibly Avast & Secureline or Grimefighter
Good question though.
