I think the domain antivir.com has been registered by alwil/avast! for a long time (even though I'm not 100% sure). Pavel may have some more info... (when he's back from U.S.)

Antivir is czech word used for 'anti virus program'. So we've registered antivir.cz and antivir.com, the same way as we registered avast.cz and avast.com
