    I am currently trying out the 6month free Premium license of Avira Anti-vir, and I really like it. It is fairly light on resources, unintrusive, and does a great job.

    Otherwise, I'm sure most other apps work on x64. I haven't had a problem with McAfee, Avast, Norton, or Avira on my x64 Ultimate.

    JCMS is referring to Norton Internet Security 2008. Apparently it has gotten a lot better on system resource usage. Norton's detection and removal rates are typically (from what I understand) outstanding.

    If you are looking for a good paid AV try Kaspersky. It is fairly light on resources and does an excellent job at detection and prevention. I like NOD, but I understand if you want to look for something else.
