Anti Virus on Win 7 x64

Hi

I have a problem with anti virus on 64bit version. I installed KAV 8. After installation there was an some error with file and memory. Then I tried AVG 8, but without success. I think there is a problem with 64 bit versions. I had a 32bit before and everything was just perfect.

If anyone knows whats the problem or whats the best solution please write here.

thanx

I might just give that a try my friend
Unfortunately my Norton 360 V2 is not working as efficient as it should be.
I wonder if the original poster had any success?

thanx a lot guys. I tried AVG 30 mins ago but it was not a free version. Now I installed KAV 9 and it is working. I think there was a compatibility problem with older versions.
Thanx for your quick help...)

V3 works great in windows 7, its also much faster than V2 and has improved in terms of detection rate.

@sanssan, Kaspersky and AVG both work great in windows 7 64-bit, always make sure you have downloaded the latest version, Kaspersky 2010 or AVG 8.5. Make sure never to have more than one antivirus on your pc at a time, as doing so will slow it down and even render it unusable!
