With Avast and Microsoft in your corner, there’s not much that can get in your way. When Microsoft supports Avast Antivirus on all Windows machines, it sends a clear message: we’re respected for what we do. That’s why industry experts like PC Magazine and PC Advisor rate us highly too.

Already have Avast? We’ve got you covered

If you’re planning on upgrading from older versions of Windows, such as XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 8.1, we’re ready to keep your new Windows 10 PC virus-free. Just make sure you’re running the latest version of Avast before you upgrade your machine, and when you finish the transition to Windows 10, you’ll find us there, right where you left us, ready to protect your PC and everything you hold dear in it.

System Requirements

It doesn’t take much to have a machine protected by Avast. All you need is a PC with 256 MB+ RAM and 1.5 GB of hard disk space. If your Windows PC has that (which it very likely should), you’ll be good to go.
