please download this file (direct link) - http://free.avg.com/download-file-ins-afg-free on computer with broadband internet and transfer it to your on flash card. Then uninstall AVG 7.5 on your station and run the transferred AVG9 installation file (it should be named avg_free_stf_en_90_698a1730.exe).
Greetings. After receiving notice that AVG free 7.5 no longer protects me, attempts to Download AVG free 8.5/9.x and install have failed numerous times. This XP SP2 machine with dial-up at around 40 kbs would really like to be protected. Can't afford broadband at the moment. I suppose I could just run it barefoot and reload Windows in case of infection. I've really appreciated AVG over the years.
The AVG download manager will at times recognize the previously downloaded files and acknowledge the fact that they exist on the local drive, suggesting that I might be able to complete the package. When activating download after the acknowledgement, alas, it starts the download over and I time out again and again. I have access to broadband elsewhere, where I could download the pertinent files and transfer via flash drive to the old home machine, but that hasn't worked either. The AVG installation program takes me through accepting the license agreement and then fails to recognize the file header where, presumably, the installation files reside. The suggestion at AVG's web to enter the "Tools" menu and set software to dial up doesn't seem to exist on the 'free' version. Perhaps, it is no longer possible to use AVG with lowly dial-up connection.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
