I'm sure there are some free antivirus software packages out there but i wouldn't recommend using any free software for antivirus (especially if it is a server).  I think you will find that most people in this forum will agree with me.  You basically get what you pay for and you will regret it.

The only antivirus software that's free (non-demo free) is AVG.  But as far as I know it's workstation only.  McAfee Enterprise works on servers and workstations and costs about $20 per year for an enterprise agreement.

If want AV for your server, by all means, spend $50 and get Mcafee or Norton.

Keep it offline. Other options are not acceptable for free. OfficeScan 6.5 from Trend Micro is the best your money can buy!

Good luck!
