What happens if I already have Avira Online Essentials (Free Antivirus) and want to install a paid version of Avira Antivirus?

Install the newly acquired Antivirus version on your device. During the installation, the existing Avira Antivirus Free version will be uninstalled and replaced by the new acquired Avira Antivirus version.

After the successful installation, you can access as usual via your Avira Windows client (Launcher) the Online Essentials Dashboard and manage your installed products and devices.

An uninstallation of the Avira Windows Client (Launcher) leads to a inconvenient access to the Online Essentials platform and thus to a difficult administration of your Avira products or devices.
