NB - if you have a real-time antivirus program already installed you'll need to disable the protection provided in AnVir Pro!

I tried to purchase this UNSUCCESSFULLY the day it was offered on Bits du Jour.  I don't know what the problem is with me and that website but this is the second time I've had problems purchasing a program I wanted. Both times the deal was no longer available even though the website showed there was still time left to buy them.  I like AnVir Task Manager Pro because it's easier for me to understand it than it is for me to decipher Sysinternal's apps. I have a few days left with it before the trial runs out. Guess I'll try to make good use of it. I missed out on Macrium Reflect too.  :(  Maybe it is because of the time difference but if the page tells me X # of hours left to purchase, I have assumed that included Californians too.

- sad story! I have tried that once with Bits du Jour and several times with Giveawayoftheday. When re-installed, the problem was usually solved. Once I also had to use another browser, though I no longer remember the circumstances.
