Did you get the right version? Avast Home is free for 'home users which
do not use their computer for profit' (quote from their home page). You
just register, they will send you a key by e-mail, and you can use it
for (I think) a year. After that period you're free to apply for a new
key. And it is really 64-bits, it works just fine on XP Pro x64, I run
it on mine. Though I have to admit as far as I'm concerned they could
have used a slightly less fancy interface...

And are you sure about a free x64 McAfee? I couldn't find anything about
an x64 version, let alone about a free version, and it doesn't sound
like them at all, unless it's a beta, or something.
