Maybe not my call, but it sure sounds like you need a resuming download manager, that is able to resume your download from where you left off in the event you are disconnected before the download completes. Failing a resuming download manager, if you are disconnected before the download completes, you lose the whole download and have to restart from scratch.

And with Avast 5 being a 38 MB download as I recall, the probability that a slow connection will get it all without disconnecting is not very high.

There are a plethora of good freeware download managers, I happen to use the star free version, but if you use any download manager with the Firefox browser, you will need a plug in called
flash got.

But I sure can't say the Star download manager is the best, many on this forum can recommend other equal or better download managers.
