How to move my Avast to new pc
« on: May 23, 2011, 07:01:13 PM »
Hi  :)
(Sorry if I'm in the wrong threat  :()

We have 2 desktops and a laptop in our home. We're retiring one of the desktops and replacing it with a new one. How do I move my Avast Internet Security from my old pc to the new one?

Than you  :D

You can't move it from one to the other it has to be installed in the new one.

Download the latest AIS version, save to USB, etc. use that to install on the new system.

Presumably you saved your copy of the license.avastlic file, copy that to the new system and double click on it and avast should extract the license and register it with the remaining license period.

Once you have done that uninstall AIS from the old/redundant PC.
