Review article: 

Best Free Windows 64-bit

Pros: 

Continues to maintain a reasonable detection rate. Now a hybrid 32/64 bit application under Vista 64.

Many threats go undetected. Uses a programming technique designed for pre-Vista applications that may be unsupported in future versions of Windows.

Product type: 

Runs as a stand-alone program on a user's computer
