Avast CD
« on: October 24, 2016, 11:54:02 AM »
Where do I purchase an Avast CD for installation on windows XP that has no virus protection.  I'm afraid to go online to download Avast without any anti-virus protection.

Because I am not online with the computer that needs the protection!  That should have been obvious!

That's why usb's are useful, I thought that was obvious ;D

I have no idea what you mean.  But since you have nothing better to offer than insulting 71 year old grandmas in this forum.  I will be on my way and find another virus protection that actually offers real support for its users.

In short, there's no CD/DVD for Avast that you can buy in a shop.

Sorry but I didn't insult you, it was a just a cheeky reply to your "obvious" comment ;)

It also isn't as simple as just getting a cd or usb with the Avast installation media.
If you currently have another AV on your system, it first needs to be totally removed
before you install Avast.
