Very often the best price is available by choosing the Upgrade within Avast Free.
This also shows you how to de-activate the auto renewal function in the paid version.

Quick Assist Windows 10 v.1607

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dd-ajJ376jQ
An alternative to Remote Assistance which was recently removed from Avast.
This also makes it easy to copy something from the computer that has control to the computer
you are controlling. Simply copy the item from the controlling computer, then switch focus to the computer
being controlled and paste it there. (Right click and select paste or Ctrl V )
Yesterday I had an opportunity to put this Microsoft tool into action.
One of the members of my senior center back in NM had a problem accessing her email.
The tool work flawlessly even with the limited WiFi access that I had and I was able to remotely fix her problem.
