Antivirus review (whats been working and not)

I have tried a few AV programs such as:
  • AVG (fails to download updates after a few weeks of use)
  • Bit Defender (crashed)

I am using the latest RC (build 7100) and would like to put a AV to work, but don't want to go through the trials and errors if some of you have had success.

Oh and I don't want to pay for AV. I dont use the bloatware that comes with them like firewall and the like.

Looking for a AV... that's it.

If you could pay, NOD32 and ESET Smart Security are good They're perfect.
I'm using ESET Smart Security 4 x64 and it runs perfectly without any problems

which version? because i used the latest trial version (32-bit), and it would not update.
so i switched to 4.0.3xx and it works fine.

Maybe it was some bug, that Eset has to iron out?
