Very little information to go from that, but  assuming you have no money to spend, do you have AD? If so look at using group policy and keeping it up to date with WSUS.

But note the product is not really aimed at 3000 desktop size deployments

To use Group Policy - yes
To be honest for 3000 machine you should look at an enterprise solution.
How are you going to manage these? How will you know which ones have viruses, which have up to date definitions, which ones are expirencing issues.
