    ESET NOD32/ESET Smart Security (all V4 versions work ok with Win7).
    AVG
    Avira
    Avast
    Kaspersky (I believe that 2008 branch of Kaspersky is compatible, but I didn't used it by myself so I cannot confirm)
    Microsoft Security Essentials (beta).

    I personally use Eset smart security, because of the low resources usage and small footprint.

    If you're going Kaspersky install the new 2010 version, which is fully compatible with Windows 7.

    When using ESET v4 do not disable BITS(Background Intelligent Transfer Service).The results will not be nice.My buddy and me ran into this issue while tweaking Win7

    ESET Smart Security works great on Windows XP, Vista or Seven RC 7100 with a login/pw program.
    I didn't have any virus in 4 years using both ESET NOD32 and ESET Smart Security.

    Microsoft's new AV will work too, and it is free.

    I discovered Comodo (AV firewall and sytem protction) after discovered Endpoint's firewall didn't properly in Win7 (at least not in x64 build. Is a free app, very light weight, and extremely reliable.
