Choose “Compatible Install” if you already have an antivirus application running on your computer and you want to use avast! Internet Security 7 as a secondary line of defense.
I don’t recommend “Custom install” option for new users however naive users can go ahead with it.

Else you can continue with the “Install in trial mode“.

It would have a typical .avastlic extension.
To use this license file, choose “Supply a license file” mode and click on browse.
If you want a avast Internet Security 7 license file or activation code for yourself, you can Google it. Many leaked license key still prevail on the Internet and I don’t know when avast will even take action against that.

Click on “Next>” .
7>>The installation will now begin and would take a few minutes to complete. So please be patient and have a sip of coffee.
