Cannot Completely Download AVG Free Edition

by TooDawgs / January 19, 2008 3:53 PM PST

I have AVG free edition on my main computer and I'd like to install it on my other PC, but when I try to download it from download.com it starts to download but then stops at about 200 kb and tells me the download is complete, which at 200kb it's not done. I've tried to download it on both PC's with the same results. Any help would be much apprciated.

That seems to violate the EULA.

Your choice.

Why is that?

In reply to: Hmm.

Why would it violate anything downloading from their website?

This is why:
