What accounts for the size difference between the installers?

Hello. I'm new to Online Armor (about to install, hopefully) and I have a few questions. I will try to keep the different subjects in different threads so as not to confuse things.

On the download page (http://www.online-armor.com/downloads.php) the installer for Premium and ++ versions is identical (http://download3.emsisoft.com/OnlineArmorSetup.exe). I expected them to be different, but presumably this installer includes everything and will ask if I want to install the Anti-virus (I don't). Is that right?

Also, the installer for the free version at CNET is larger (20,680,392 bytes) than the version available from this site (19,956,408 bytes). I could understand the free version being smaller, maybe because it contains fewer things, but how can it be larger?

Finally, I understand that if I install Premium before having bought it, I will have a 30 day trial and that when the trial runs out, if I choose not to buy a license key, then it will simply revert to the free version. Is this correct (considering that the free version has a different installer that seems to contain extra stuff)?

Thank you.

The installer is all in one now :) It contains all versions (Free, Premium and ++) and you select which one you want during the installation.

Also, the installer for the free version at CNET is larger (20,680,392 bytes) than the version available from this site (19,956,408 bytes). I could understand the free version being smaller, maybe because it contains fewer things, but how can it be larger?

All I can think of is that somehow the CNET site isn't hosting the latest version despite the page saying it's the same version as the one on the OA website. It's strange. Personally I'd download from the http://download3.emsisoft.com/OnlineArmorSetup.exe link instead since that's definitely the latest version.

Finally, I understand that if I install Premium before having bought it, I will have a 30 day trial and that when the trial runs out, if I choose not to buy a license key, then it will simply revert to the free version.

Yes, it will revert to the free version if you choose not to purchase.
