    Does anyone know of a free AV for server systems? I know all the major AV companies produce server versions but are there any free ones?

    I'm not aware of any, I think they take the view that servers will be in companies who should be able to afford to pay licence fees.

    That's what I was thinking too Phil. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any or had been able to make a personal use version run on a server system. I know there was a small program that could do this for you by changing some registry keys but I think this only worked on NT 4.0.

    Same here, as was previously stated - servers tend to be located in companies and as such you almost always have to pay for licences e.t.c. My anti virus of choice at the moment would be AVG but like i said, you do have to pay for it if it's being used in a business environment.
