In a couple of weeks I'll be returning to Australia after 2 years living away. My computer there (Vista Home Premium, from memory) has been in mothballs all that time.
I know that there have been upGRADES of all my protection programs (SAS, MWBAM, SpyB, Scotty, Avast...) in my absence.
Not to mention all those Windows updates.
My ISP plan is only for 500Mb downloads monthly, so I'm planning to save as many current .exe files of those programs to a thumb drive before returning.
Any suggestions as to the sequence of re-installation? Can I just install new over the top of old? I figure Avast first, in safe mode.
The logistics of this are doing my head in...
