Can't download AVG Anti-virus Free Edition 8.0.138 upgrade

I have been receiving the notice to upgrade to 8.0.138. Everytime I try to download it, it says thank you for downloading but it never really downloaded. I have turning off the firewall for the download and that hasn't worked. What is the problem? I am using Window XP Home with SP2.

I would download...

the current full version of 8.0.138 and save to disk.

Then uninstall the present version and remove all remnants from the programs folder on the hard drive.

Then install the new version 8.0.138... does it work now?
