    I've installed ESET smart security into both x86 and x64 windows 8 with no problems. Trusted it for over 5 years and won't boot up without it.

    I Personally like AVG better than any other AV. It also has a built in emulator for x32bit and AMDx64bit Computers. Which is great for Protection. The Web blocking is good as well. You can see AVG in action at my Youtube Channel: CyberN3rds - YouTube
