    Wierd, Mine was 390Mb lol :laugh:

    Regardless its installed, and working fine for me. :toast:

    EDIT: Just read your screenshot a bit better, I'm running the 32 bit version. Vista Business. Stage 1/2 took a while, and the restart stage 3 did too, but it works fine.

    meh I downloaded it 3 times and all 3 installs fail to go. I guess I have to wait for my update to pick it up. I just get a "Failed to install" message box.

    I think the dl size depends on how up to date you are with your updates.
