Vista Feb 06 CTP and 64-bit antivirus - Windows Vista

Hello Vista users: Anyone running 64-bit Vista Feb 06 CTG and a 64-bit anti-virus application successfully? Have tried AVAST and Symantec. In both cases their current 64-bit corporate editions failed to work. AVAST resulted in system slowdowns and lockups, Symantec resulted in BSOD loops. (AVAST worked fine with 64-bit Vista, Nov 05 CTP, didn't try Symantec until today.) As far as I can tell these are the only 2 vendors with 64-bit AV that is Vista-aware, but neither seems compatable with the Feb 06 Vista CTP. Anyone with some success to share? Thanks, John...

    If you try ClamWin as well - [url]www.clamwin.com[/url] works really well, but doens't
    offer real-time scanning :o(
    Long list here as well:
