Essential free virus/malware software for 64bit W7?

I've looked through the FREE Great Programs for Windows 7 [2] and Free Native 64-bit programs threads, but they were created years ago. I just want to know what are the free software that I should put on a Windows 7 64 bit installation to keep it clean and secure. I've tried all sorts, but I've had trouble with some in the past.

I personally dont like kaspersky,my opinion'too much bright things and not really action



But if you are happy with kaspsersky go with kaspersky.



Malwarebytes is one of the best.



In Crashes and Debugging i found many bsod cases points to,



Avg,zone alarm,Mcafee,comodo,so try to avoid these,especially mcafee and zonealarm.



My favorite is Eset smart Security 5.



And for free system protection you can use this Good and Free system security combination.



Well,is always depends for what and how you use the system.
