Like Lucian said it's important that the drivers are compatible with 64 bit, which is the case. Turning KAV/KIS into a full 64 bit application will not have any real advantages, so I would not expect that this will be changed in near future.
There is a vast difference in features & advantages of running as a full 64 bit application instead of as a 32 bit process, not least the ability to protect itself from malware attacks and the lesser load on a computer system
all 32 bit applications running on a 64 bit system take a small amount of extra processing power where they are virtualised & not running directly under the processor architechure
This does give a miniscule oportunity for the bad guys to bypass any AV running as a 32 bit process ( it is almost impossible to do but it can be done)
having 64 bit drivers doesn't make an application fully 64 bit compatible
We are all just stsrting to get removal tools to work on 64 bit systems ( although hopefully they won't need a lot of use becaue at this time the bad guys haven't got round patch guard yet so can't install unsigned drives or patch drivers or services on 64 bit BUT they can attack any 32 bit process running under 64 bit)
