Welcome to Seven Forums L Maclaren.

Are you downloading from here?
Download Skype on your computer - Windows, Mac, and Linux - Get Skype

You can turn Avast off while downloading to see if that helps.

Welcome to Seven Forums L Maclaren. If downloading from the legit site in Britton30's post, Avast Antivirus should not block the download. Can you post a screenshot of the error, or popup that you get?
