Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit RTM

ESET NOD32, hands down, no contest.

I use only NOD32 and have it's Vista 64-bit version working great on Windows RC-1. It detected and removed viruses just fine when I was scanning a co-worker's drive via USB to remove viruses for them (I do PC work on the side apart from my full time job as a software engineer).

You don't need the suite from ESET, just the basic NOD32 package, a browser less prone to attacks like Firefox or Opera, and some good browser add-ons for whitelisting sites to allow JavaScript.

The "detection in the wild" and scanning throughput of NOD32 beats all others, no exceptions. It also has the smallest footprint of any of the big name Anti-virus packages out there.
