What happens if I install the Avira Online Essentials client on my PC and I have Avira Free Antivirus already installed?

During the installation process of the Avira Online Essentials client (Launcher) the setup wizard will detect your current Avira Free Antivirus product and will not overwrite it. In case your existing Avira Free Antivirus is outdated, the setup wizard will perform a product upgrade.

After the successful installation of the Avira Launcher you are able to use and configure your Avira Free Antivirus product as usual.
