Yeah, I don't know why it is so large. It is 16.5MB in Program Files when installed. I had to give up trying to download it until about 1AM here as it was a VERY slow download. Softpedia has it, download.com, GData in Germany, and GData in England and not much other sources for download. I got it from England at a decent download rate given how far away I am. I think GData needs to put a server on the West Coast. I was surprised that MajorGeeks doesn't have it as their mirrors are reasonably fast for me or FileHippo (which does have paid AV as well as free). Softpedia and download.com were very slow. I think GData is about where Avira was when I first got them (Jan 2007) in regards to penetration and interest in the USA.
