Mike, thank you for trying to help: but as I said in my original message I can't get Fresh Download and Avast to work together.
I'm obviously doing something wrong here if you can get it to work: can you suggest where I'm making the mistake? I would be grateful.
I open FD: navigate to Avast's download webpage; click to start the download; and a dialogue box appears asking if I want to run, save or cancel the download. Fresh Download doesn't automatically step in, and there's no URL for me to manually add to FD's list. What should I do?
Several more posts came up while I was typing that, sorry.
I don't have the old computer available, so can't copy it over; nor do I have access to a computer with a broadband connection; nor do I have any PC Advisor cover disks to hand (does one have an Avast on it?), so can't do anything like that.
I'll go and try Mike's second link now, see how much luck I have with that. Meanwhile, some advice on how to get Fresh Download and Avast to play nicely together would be much appreciated.
I have no idea what that link was, but when I clicked it, Fresh Download started up on my computer and Avast started downloading through it.
So far I have a whole 1% downloaded. It might take all night but at least it's working.
Thank you for that, Mike. Now, if anyone would like to point me towards how to make it happen for myself, I'd be grateful but no problems if you're too busy, as I'll just have to come back here and ask again!
Thanks to all who made suggestions and offered help, by the way--it is most appreciated.
