There have been replies to your other post, but best to stick to this Topic.

seems avast refuse to run on the latest samsung laptop , it has no support for the snapdragon 680 chip or for an ARMS based machine running Windows 10 , very poor showing by them , atleast i know who not to recommend , one lost user .

Basically these are Mobile chipsets and using the ARM instruction set and not the Windows OS, which this Topic is all about and this forum (outside of the Avast for Android Mobile sub-forum) is all about.

If you are talking about previous MS Windows Surface, I don't think that Avast supported that either.

See https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-10-on-arm-what-you-need-to-know-before-you-buy-a-surface-pro-x/.
Also see https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4521606/windows-10-arm-based-pc

And, better news from Avast:
We are working on a version for ARM processors, we aim to introduce it in beta quality by the end of this year, so stay tuned ;-)
