Make sure you use the same user account and when you install Avast
choose Customize and select Passwords (Old) before the installation.

Well, I spoke too soon. This did not work. I did as you said during the installation, but my passwords from old computer are not there. What now?

Yes, I did that before I re-contacted you - still  no passwords.

Did you sign into your account which would trigger sending you a code
to your email account. Once entered, you should see your passwords.

How to transfer passwords to new computer in Avast Free Antivirus?

Hi,

You do not seem to have a cloud backup of your Avast Passwords data. You will need to access the "old" computer and do one of the following:
A: Synchronizing Avast Passwords data - https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/synchronize-passwords-across-devices/
B: Export Avast Passwords data to file and on the new computer IMPORT FROM FILE
