This screen print shows the file size, in case that info might help you before you download via dialup.

A few suggestions:
  • Fix current install: Try Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> avast -> repair
  • Update to new version:
  • I'm waiting until avast provides the next program update to version 9.
    • Do you have a Wifi adapter?
      Is there Wifi near you? Coffee shop, Restauraunt, Library?

You could always use the avast removal tool as well.

avast! Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for avast! Removal

Run it in safe mode and it will remove avast completely. Then download a fresh copy of the new version and install.
