Program Size
« on: January 25, 2004, 11:48:41 AM »
I use Avast 4 Home Edition.  I notice that the size of the program (from XP Pro Add/Remove Programs) is 40.66MB.  Does that sound about right?   Just struck me as being a bit on the large side and certainly larger than I would have guessed.

The size doesn't look unreasonable... you can check the size of the avast! installation folder in Explorer, but I think it is correct.
Of course, the installed (extracted) files will be bigger than the original installation package; also, the installation packages are stored for the updating purposes, some additional data files are created; then, VRDB may be created which also takes some space...

Many thanks for putting my mind at rest Igor, I was just unfamiliar with that side of things.   I feel I can't praise the program and the team behind it highly enough.  Thanks again.  :)
