    go download it on another computer.

    put the download file on a flash drive

    move the flash drive to the problem computer

    install it that way.

    Also you said downloading 2 times.

    That means copying a file from a website to a pc.

    INSTALLING means using that file and running it on your pc...

    which is the problem?

    You download the avg setup file and install it on your computer not download it to the system.

    If you are really that badly infected why not try Trend Micro Housecall and remove 99.9% before you start

    and I'd forget AVG and get avast home for free instead (much better) download it to your desktop so you can find it later and double click the install file.

    Avira is your best bet and spybot serch and destroy. I use Norton my self and I find that works best but I have used the two mentioned. Norton is £29.99 from Smiths.

    ok, use a prog called revo uninstaller, its free but it has the ability to remove progs fromm the roots, if cant find the remaining remmnents of zone alarm, try to install the zone alarm again and remove it with this prog and it will rip it from its roots and nothing leftover

    Did your computer use to have Norton on if so run Norton removal tool first.

    just go on the most user-friendly website

    www.download.com

    it should be top of the list

    then try and delete any trace of old antivirus if any

    Good luck
