Free AV software for Windows Server 2003


Recommended Posts

I got my hands on a legal copy of Server 2003, and I' going to be using it for my home media server soon. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good free AV that will work on server 2003. I have looked at a few, including AVG and Avast, but they all the free versions say that they are not for server OS's.

Here's a list you'll have to test with...

Avast Free - http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

AVG Free - http://www.grisoft.com/doc/31/ww/crp/0

Norton Systemworks 2007 (supposedly free)- http://www.guardyourpc.com/?src=WC-00087aaa:33335:

AOL Virus Scan (you need a free AOL email address, not sure if it works with 2003, based off Kasperky)- http://daol.aol.com/safetycenter/virus?sem...M00170000000053

I emailed Ian Gizmo Richards, of Tech Support Alert, and this is what he said:

"Well first do you need AV on a media server? I don't run any on my Media Center PC even though it sits on my LAN. What I do is periodically scan the MC PC drives from other workstations by mapping the MC drives as network drives.

Second you might look at the Open Source ClamWin. It may run on server."

And I also have a deep hate for AOL, but they have done a couple of things right. Like their Xdrive free remote storage, 5GB. I use it and it works OK, but could be better. I'm sure that Google's Gdrive will be way better, and I can't wait for that to come out.
