    The purpose of creating a ".AVASTLIC backup" file is to have a backup copy of the Avast software license file. Avast is an antivirus program that requires a valid license to function properly. By creating a backup of the license file, users can ensure that they have a copy of the license in case the original file gets lost, corrupted, or accidentally deleted. This backup file can be used to restore the license and reactivate Avast if needed.

  • How can I create a backup of my Avast license using a ".AVASTLIC backup" file?

    To create a backup of your Avast license using a ".AVASTLIC backup" file, follow these steps:

    1. Open the Avast user interface by double-clicking on the Avast icon in your system tray or by searching for "Avast" in your Start menu.
    2. Once the Avast user interface is open, click on the "Menu" button in the top-right corner of the window. It looks like three horizontal lines.
    3. In the dropdown menu that appears, select "My licenses" to open the licenses section.
