I purchased and set up a new computer this week, it included Norton

Could not update Norton anti-virus definitions no matter what I did.
It's a long story so I won't get into the details.

I downloaded and ran the Norton remover from their site and removed

Then, I tried to download and install avast home edition anti-virus
software.  Downloads okay but when I try to install, it tells me the
file is corrupted.  I cleared my cache and downloaded again.  File is
corrupted.  Again and again -- same result.

Now what???

Is there anti-virus software, compatible with Vista, that I can
purchase as a CD/DVD so I don't have to worry with downloading?
