What virus/spyware program to get for 7 64?

What do you guys think is a top of the line virus/spyware program for 7 64?

Ideally I'd prefer a free one...

I use Kaspersky 2010

For free AVG i think would be one of the best,but i havent tried it on Windows 7 yet.

For a free antivirus these two are the best in my opinion:

Avira
MSE

A better method of protection though is to sandbox your apps. These methods cost money but are far superior to antiviruses:

Sandboxie
DefenseWall

Exactly. MSE is light-weight, effective and best of all FREE.

Defensewall is not for 64bit.
Best free AV IMO is Avast and MSE.

+1 for MSE. I don't run it but if you're after a free program, it's the one to grab

Dinesh, I would like your expert opinion. I have 3 licenses of Norton 2009 still unused (planned to install when I got all computers up and runnign 7) but I am now running MSE and I am pretty happy with it. I heard good things about NAV2009, in oposition to N360, which I have now and think slows everything down.
Should I stick to MSE? I think it is running just great.
Tks
