Does anyone know of a free Vista x64 compatible AV program?

Looking for a free, Vista 64-bit compatible Anti-Virus program. AVG has failed me :(

I don't want a trial, I want something that is fully-functional at all times. I know 64-bit is secure, but things more important have been thought secure while they certainly weren't. ;)

Thanks!

    try avast
    Free antivirus - avast! 4 Home Edition

    avast! Home/Professional now fully supports the 64-bit Windows platform.

    Quote:
    Regular (32-bit) antivirus applications are unable to operate correctly on the 64-bit Windows platform because they rely on 32-bit kernel-mode drivers. The new avast! uses native 64-bit drivers, delivering the same level of protection as in the 32-bit Windows environments. The installation package is the same for 32-bit and 64-bit versions - the setup program automatically detects the operating system it is running on, and installs all necessary files.

  2. Hmm...Looks nice. I have one question, however. Does this 'registration' require money? I can't tell if it does or not...

    The whole process is very simple: you need to download the program from the avast! 4 Home Download page, selecting the appropriate language. Then you need to install it, which is a mostly an automatic process. Initially, if you don't register straight away, you'll install the trial version, which is fully functional for sixty days. During this period, you can register yourself on the avast! 4 Home Free Registration page, and you will receive your license key by E-mail within 24 hours. Insert this key into the avast! 4 Home product, and you will receive the non-restricted version of avast! 4 Home Edition, including access to the update service (the incremental update of the virus database), for one year. After this period you can reregister to obtain a new free license key.

    home edition is free, but you'll have to register to get the free license.
