1006 is our internal error.

Try this: run the setup, wait for the error dialogue, _do not_ press anything. Open another explorer window, navigate to avast temp dir a check if it's full of vpu files.

Because your log says:
08.07.2007 18:43:42 general: Used server: C:\DOCUME~1\user\LOCALS~1\Temp\_av_sfx.tm~a02840

That means the name of the temp dir for avast sfx (it's random)

08.07.2007 18:43:42 file: GetFileWithRetry:DSA_FileVerify(C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\Setup\av_pro_core-397.vpu), error: 0x00000000

And this means that av_pro_core-397.vpu was not there or was broken.

Be also sure you've got enough space on the drive and you have write rights to the dir.

I can't help because Goliver still haven't replied to my questions in my latest post. I'm still interested what files are in the temp dir, because setup.log suggest they are not there.

Has anyone figured out the fix for this error.   I just convinced a bud to install and he is now getting this error.    Norton has been removed.  The setup exe for avast has been removed.  There are no file found in local settings as previously mentioned.  There are no files in the Programs or Registry.   But each time the setup exe is downloaded from Cnet.com the error continues.   The setup on the pc is XP office, no antivirus, dial up.   I think the problem is with CNet.com as I have noticed the download starts with an indicated 2 hours to complete, then it quickly changes up to 12 minutes and completes.   I have left my bud's and called him back and instructed him to try downloading the English version directly from avast.com.

Just to finalize the problem my friend was having with the error 1006, remove old antivirus, then install avast.   Download the avast program directly from the avast site by selecting the English version.    If your on dial up expect the download to fail several times before it finally downloads.   When you have to start a new download delete the setupeng.exe that failed before downloading again.    In this case we downloaded 8 times before it finally completed.   Bud is now up and running and once again a happy camper.

When you have to start a new download delete the setupeng.exe that failed before downloading again.
Or, try to use a download manager.
Free Download Manager can do this job (and many others) very well.
