Migration to new computer

My old computer is dying and I am buying a new one.  Microsoft now encourages "migration programs" since they no longer do a transfer program.  Migration programs don't transfer security programs.  I am a 73 year old disabled vet, lost my hearing so can't do this by phone and I will not remember comments from the chat feature so hoping to get help here.  When I am ready to put F Secure Internet Security on my new desktop, where do I go to get the download and what is required for me to get F Secure working on the new computer?

Hello,

 

Sorry for my reply. I'm also only an F-Secure user (their home solutions).

 

There is page for downloads:

Possible to scroll it until "F-Secure Internet Security" part will be visible.

Then should be possible to choose "Download for Windows".

 

After run installation (by launch downloaded F-SecureNetworkInstaller.exe) -> installation will ask your licence-key at certain step.

 

There are official F-Secure Knowledgebase articles:

can be useful too.

 

Thanks!

Re: Migration to new computer

I need to know where to go to get the download after I move to a new computer.  It was called Internet Security when I bought it, and I paid for many years into the future.  Is it now called F Secure SAFE?  I don't know what to download, or where to go to get the download.  I think I have the security key from the old Internet Security program

Thank you.  Is F-Secure SAFE the name of the product now?  When I bought it years ago I think it was called Internet Security, allows for virus scans, internet browsing etc.  There are several programs on the page you linked to
