Having trouble with a download

Ok, I recently upgraded my OS to WinXP. I had been using 98SE. Also, before using WinXP, I had downloaded AVG from this site. It was off when I did the XP upgrade. Now, however, AVG will not work - something about a corrupt file. So I shrug it off and uninstall the program. And now I have another problem...

I download the file from this site again. I go to run the application file and it says "Some installation files are corrupt. Please download a fresh copy and try again." So I download a fresh copy and try again. No luck. I'm pretty stumped as to what the problem is. I browsed around the forum for a while and found nothing stating that particular download was dead, so any help you guys can offer is well appreciated.

Thanks.

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Use add / remove to uninstall AVG

Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Download and install AVG
