    1.) Avira doesn't support Windows 8.

    2.) When the OS will be supported, you will be able to use the same license key which you used before (of course if it will not be expired till that time).

    At this point only the 2013 versions of Avira products are compatible with Windows 8. According to the document at the following page customers of the 2012 version can/will get a free upgrade to 2013.

    Firstly I would open your Avira AV and check for 'Updates' as there may be one for the new OS and implement it. If not, phone/email Avira directly with your software 'Key Number', which you were given at the start of using the security, and ask them to update it for you - That's if it is a paid version. If free, then just go and download the OS compatible version from Avira's site or another download site. Hope this helps :)
