AVG 2014 is compatible with all versions of Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 Enterprise.

In case you are about to upgrade to Windows 8 and you are using an older version of AVG (2013, 2012, 2011, 9.0 or 8.5), please upgrade to AVG 2014 as described in the article How to upgrade to AVG 2014 when you already have an older AVG version.

If you are looking for help with installing AVG 2014 on a computer without previous version of AVG, see article How to download and install AVG.

For more information about compatibility and system requirements of AVG products, or to purchase AVG products please visit the AVG product pages.

It is not possible to install AVG on Windows 8 RT (also called Windows RT) which is used on some tablets and similar devices. This version of Windows is different than the PC version, and runs only applications specifically designed for this platform.
