Buying new PC
« on: November 26, 2015, 12:54:28 PM »
Hi
I am possibly going to pension off my PC, which is on Windows 3.1. It's starting to get a bit flaky. However if I buy a new PC it will be on Win 10.

How do I transfer the licence and software onto the new machine ?

Real easy.
Install avast and use your license file.

Given you say that are possibly "going to pension off my PC, which is on Windows 3.1" I have to wonder what avast AV (and license) you have installed on a Windows 3.1 OS ?
