Do you mean to say you can download any file you want from any site you want, except the avg setup file (with me it's called avg_free_stb_eu_2011_1392_free.exe, but that might be version and language dependent) from http://free.avg.com ?
Or are there any other files on any other site that you can't download either?

The easy workaround: download it on another PC to your USB-stick and install from there on this PC.
