Installation of Avast Antivirus Home Edition on more than 1 PC?
« on: November 14, 2004, 09:19:47 AM »
Hi I would like to know is it possible to install Avast Antivirus (Home Edition) on more than one computers at home with the same License key?

Will the Avast Server give it a miss in updating the Virus Signatures if one computer is updated and the other is not yet updated when using the same License key?

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Thank

Conway

No,Home Edition can be installed on more PCs with the same key.
As long as its used for non commercial use (using at home).
Also Home Edition doesn't check registration with updates so this won't mess with updates in any way. Its the programs internal version that checks with server wether its up to date or not.

Hi RejZoR

Thank for your reply.  Do you mean that I can install Avast Antivirus (Home Edition) on more than one computers at home with the same License key?

OR

What do you mean by your "No" in your reply?
