I just tried that Downloads.cnet.com link and it worked for me.
I currently have a file waiting to be downloaded called avg_free_stb_all_9_39_cnet.exe . All I have to do is click "Save file".
May I ask, which browser are you using? Can you try another browser?
CNET bought a house!
Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
