    antivirus & spyware

    I managed a small non-profit entity . We use Microsoft Security essentials
    for antivirus on the workstations. IS there a good reliable freeware
    antivirus program for the servers? We have a domain and Exchange member
    server

    Thanks,

    Hello Raul,

    Never heard/seen a free server AV version.

    Best regards

    Raul, you might check out www.techsoup.org. They offer Symantec Endpoint
    Protection at very reasonable prices if your organization can meet the
    nonprofit qualifications.

    Take special care of Exchange server.
    You need "Exchange" type of AV software.
    If you are using standard, make sure to exclude all Exchange database and
    log files and folders. If a virus arrives in a message and it is stored in
    Exchange database or log and then if AV software tries to quarantine such a
    message, Exchange database corruption may occur.

    Bear in mind that ClamWin is an on-demand-scanner only, not on-access.
    Don't forget to configure and run (via Task Scheduler) a complete scan
    at least once daily.
