Avast has started to do the "online installer" thing, where you have to download a stub, and it then downloads the installer then installs the program from online.  Here are direct links to get the file(s), so you can have an off-line copy of the installers, if you want:

Avast Free Antivirus 2014: http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe

Avast Pro Antivirus 2014: http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup.exe

Avast Internet Security 2014: http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_internet_security_setup.exe

Avast Premiere Antivirus 2014: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup.exe

Have a great day!

I always download only from the author's site, or the site they direct me to, from their site.  This is part of my PERSONAL SECURITY RULES.  I can't recall anytime that I didn't do this for years and years and years!  On another window site that gives tips, they ALLEGE that FileHippo is starting to pull CNet tricks.  Specifically, they are starting to embed other programs into the installers.  If that is true or not, I don't know.  In this case, since the files come directly off of the AVAST site, I trust them, and not a third party site.

 

Have a great day!

I generally do and recommend the same. However, I have found MajorGeeks to be a trusted third-party hosting site for alternative downloads. Generally, they include a directed download link to the author's site in addition to their own links.
