I can't install AVAST?!?!? (fixed)

This topic can be deleted. I found that AVAST was using Internet Explorer's proxy settings to connect, but I haven't used IE in a long time, so the settings were wrong. I just had to change the proxy settings on IE to the correct settings, and AVAST was able to connect. Thanks.

When I try to install, it says something about not being able to connect to the server, and then says finished.

This is what the setup log looks like:

Anyone know how to fix this. I've already tried giving it full permissions on my firewall and even disabling my firewall.
