Trying to get avast

We have a Vista system. We had downloaded the avast virus protection (free trial) and then purchased it when the free one ran out. Now it will not let me download it.

and rather than the CNET Downloads button select the link to download from the AVAST servers.

Actually though if you installed the trial version then purchased it you got the registration number and shouldn't have to re-install, just REGISTER it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
