Creo 2.0 Install - Are there any tips or tricks to help with download problems?

I have a student that is trying to install Creo 2.0 from the PTC down load site. I understand it is a large file. (4 GB I think....) The student had it run over night and most of another day and only got as far to 70% down load. They tried a 2nd time and it started from the beginning again and only got as far as 50% before stalling. Are there any tricks to restarting a down load where it left off... of otherwise breaking up the install to complete in sections? I did not get there internet speed... and can pursue getting that information. Do you have any sort of a table as to what should be expected for the down load time frames based on the down load speed?

PTC only offers an HTTP download for the software. If you are having trouble maintaining a connection, I would suggest using a download manager or getting a copy from a friend. There are plenty of good download managers out there, but I don't have any reccomendations.

Understanding that a single successful software install down load can be used for multiple PC's is a big help. I was not understanding this was an option. This will solve this issue for us. Thanks.

Also note that real-time virus protection can cause download times to be much longer than normal. I have seen the download go as fast as 20 min for a some customers and 5 hours for others.
