    Not sure I would trust that site. Too many gramatical errors for my taste. Doesn't quite seem to have the PROFESSIONAL touch if you know what I mean. Additionally they accept donations through ICQ!!! Not a way that I would give out my credit card info. I think it's best to stay away from this one IMHO.

    It's probably just a downloader installer.

    The date is in fact 23 Aug 2004.
    Nevertheless, it was bothering me too. No news for one year. Makes you have second thoughts.
    Besides I never heard of AnVir and paying $39.95 for an adventure isn't my style. :)

    Nope, I just tried it... the entire program installed is only 500k!

    You are brave my friend. Something sounds wrong. I don't see how an AV could possibly be that small.

    Well technically even just virus databases without any program component can't be that small.
