error 1006 when trying to put avast on my computer
« on: January 29, 2009, 03:17:44 AM »

Problems putting Avast Home Edition on our new hard drive.

System:  Windows XP Pro

Setup Selfextract

   An error 1006 (000003EE) has occured.
   Last preformed operation was:
   Opening the self-extract archive

   Try to download setup file again.
   If you use Internet Explorer, clear it’s cache before downloading:
   Start->Control Panel->Internet Options and Delete Temporary Internet Files.

Have tried loading Avast home edition onto our computer nine times in the last 2 days. Have used Firefox  and Internet Explorer,  I receive the same error message.  Have even tried to download from various links. Have even sent for the Registration Key, thinking perhaps I needed to do this first.

Any suggestions as to what might work?

Thank you,
J_G_

tried installing several times also...and the same error message. I have written AVAST and they haven't replied as to what to do.....i have done all that was told to do..I also installed WindowFix still cannot install..
Please advise if you have gotten this fixed.
