Default 64bit Antivirus Programs

I am waiting for the 64bit supported FREE AVG to come out, but until then, I seriously need a 64bit free antivirus program. I had avast!, now it's not working because of some retarded error message. Any good suggestions? Thanks!!

Zone Alarm has come out with their Beta for the x64 XP. But it is still buggy. Zone Alarm Beta

Avast! supports 64Bit. Avast! homepage

AVG Pro supports 64Bit. Compatability List

Eric already mentioned NOD32. But other than that there isnt much.

Also it doesnt matter about the 64bit viruses Eric. If they find a vunerability like the metatag one that affected all Windows from 3.1 thru Vista it will also affect the 64bit versions.

Well i know that there has been at least 1 virus written to affect 64Bit. It hasnt been wide spread yet. But a AV is always a good idea to have on a windows platform incase a issue like the metatag one comes up.
