I’ve been trying to loAD avg 8.5 – IT KEEPS TELLING ME THE FILE IS CORRUPT.  What am I doing wrong?  I keep trying every night because I’m on dial up.  Thanks

Answer

Hello Lauren. You reminded me to ask one more question of folks who call me with the corrupt file error when trying to download. If you are using dialup, you will never get a clean download of a file that large. Your best bet is to download AVG from a friends house or work where you can use a broadband connection. Then transfer the download to a flash drive to bring to your computer. Dialup speeds just don’t have the consistency or speed to properly piece together all that data.

Thanks for writing!
