How do I download to multiple computers?
« on: July 18, 2010, 07:17:56 AM »
Hi Everyone,
 I bought Avast Internet Security and downloaded on my laptop but have another computer to put it on. It says its for 3 PC's but haven't seen any info on what to do for the 2nd or 3rd computers.
         Thanks,
               Doug

Simply install avast! on the other 2 computers and used the license file already sent to you on the other 2.

The latest answer said to "simply install Avast on the other computer, and use my license file.  I have my license file, but my problem is how to install Avast on my husband's computer in the first place.  I have an Internet Security good till 2013, and he has one that is running out right now.    If I just go onto his computer how do I prevent Avast from renewing that one or charging me for a new program?   I don't want to have 2 separate Avast programs going.

Copy your license.avastlic to a USB stick and transfer it to the second and third computers hard disk, somewhere that you can find it again. Always good to keep a copy of the license.avastlic backed up just in case you need it in the future.

Once you have installed avast internet security on those computers, find the license.avastlic where you saved it on the hard disk and double click it or insert it in the same way that you did for the first computer.
