Bri, not... everything perfect.
Which firewall do you use? Are you trying to open the skin or saving it to the disk?

bri is right, due to Rita hurricane in USA are/were suspended some of our servers located in Texas. Because of this are some people redirected from files.avast.com to non-running download server(s).

Yes, I have also noticed that the server was kind of slow to respond. I know this has to be the case since I have a 6mbps connection and maintain a very clean and uncluttered PC unlike many other people who have mountains of junk on their computers hogging up system resources and memory. ;)

Do you need a particular skin? If so, you can tell me your email by IM and I'll send it to you  8)

You can work around this problem.
Use direct address downloadX.avast.com/path_to_file where X is number between 1 and 25 or www.iavs.cz/path_to_file, instead of files.avast.com/path_to_file.

Please can you run 'nslookup files.avast.com' from command line and post its output here or to my e-mail?
