How do I upgrade free version of A/V my second Laptop?
« on: February 26, 2015, 11:30:12 AM »
Have recently purchased Avast A/V for three computers.  I am using the paid-up version on this laptop, how do I upgrade my Free A/V  on my second laptop to the full version?

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
Don't upset me I'm running out of places to hide the bodies.

Copy the license file to the second laptop to a location you can find it again.

Open the avastUI > Settings > Registration and either use the 'Insert activation code' or the 'Insert license file' option. I suggest the latter.

When you click the 'Insert license file' option a small windows explorer style window will open - using that navigate to the folder location toy copied the license file.

Or just doubleclick your license file after copying to your second Laptop.
