Avast Antivirus client version 19 is scheduled to be launched by the company in early 2019, but their upcoming client will not be compatible with Windows XP or Vista operating systems.
The new antivirus client version 19 will be released throughout the home and business products, but any new devices added to the network will need to use Windows 7 or later.
