As far as dial up, it could suck for you. Avast can automatically update itself, but with dial up it could bog things down until it's done.

One thing you can try to get the program itself is to find a computer magazine with the free CD in it. You know the ones in plastic bags. Most of those CDs will have utilities on them like anti virus and anti spyware apps. It'll save some time downloading the program at least.
Excellent recommendation!

Okay everyone: Remember this when confronted with a request like this from someone with a dial up connection.

I was going to suggest it would be easier to buy a CD than to download. Still have to update it, though.
