    Avast! Home Edition for Windows is on this page

    Yes, it is 64 bit compatible.

    trend’s website states:
    “Supports Intel™ Itanium™-based 64-bit clients”

    I have an user that is requesting a new x64 box, but we have no experience with the x64 platform at a minimum they need to run AV, and that site is currently running Trend officescan.

    Thank you

    Nod32 sadly isn’t a free AV offering – but it’s still 64-bit 🙂

    Computer Associates have updated their eTrust Antivirus package to r8. It’s still x64 compatible (in fact all components are actually native 64-bit, no *32’s in sight). It now uses a web GUI for it’s control centre and as an important upgrade from the r7.1 it now includes email scanning at a client, or workstation if you prefer the term :), level.

    I’ve updated to show that Nod32 isn’t free. Thanks for letting me know.

    As for Trend – NO, the Itanium version will NOT work for your x64 clients. And Trend still hasn’t released an x64 version, I’m afraid. 🙁

    Trendmicro released the new Officescan Version 7.3, which is fully x64 compatible:
