Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Whatever one you like. Use AVGfree.
Is the antivirus just for this server, or do you want an enterprise antivirus s/w so you can deploy to workstations and manage centrally?

    You should put the same kind of antivirus that you would put if it were a physical server.

    Whatever anti-virus u have to use, no one can give u 100% guarantee to keep safe ur computer. Various types of avs have different types of features. It is best to use Microsoft Security Essentials, perhaps the first product that comes with free from Microsoft. And of course, for emergency scanning, use MWAV.
