Good Free AV and Firewall software for 64-bit Windows 7. Any advice?

Okay now that alot of the bugs have been worked out of the RC i'm thinking of giving it a shot. I've gathered up drivers and versions of software that i use and the only thing that left before installing is to get compatible security software.

I know that alot of windows 7 is based on Vista(without the bloat obviously) and 64-bit compatible versions were few and far between for it.

Anyone know if any compatible versions have been released yet? Thanks in advance.

The Kaspersky Windows 7 Preview version is free while it's in beta (I actually tried to use my paid key and it refused to accept it):

I'm not sure about firewall software though. IMHO you're pretty safe if you're behind NAT and use the Windows Firewall.

AVG and Comodo. I haven't tried AVG yet, but it claims to be compatible with Win7. Comodo works fine on my computer.

Avast has a windows 7 release in beta testing as well, I would still prefer that over AVG
they will probably release a home edition of the AV which is free

Kaspersky however will cost you =)

and as for firewall, seconding comodo

I've always liked Avira as a free AV solution.

I used Nod 32 without any problems on 7 x64 7162, i guess it won't be a problem.
