    Hi there,
    Vista and Win7 x64 share the controversial kernel patch guard which makes life difficult for rootkits and a lot of antimalware applications. I think for the next 2 years, and considering the relatively small number of x64 versions, malware writers won't bother with x64. As an example Avira won't scan for rootkits on Vista x64 (at least on my machine).
    As for your title question I don't think there is as tool yet to scan Vista and Win7 x64 for rootkits.
