Server antivirus

Does anyone know if their is any good free anti virus for windows server 2003 and 2008 that we can use in our organization?  Our current one has expired and I was going to purchase some but if their are some good free ones I would like to try them.

I have used AVG on some servers which have worked well but I recommend purchasing McAfee Total Protection.

Hi

I would not install a free antivirus on a server. Some products have good free antivirus software for clients ( personal use ) but not offer any for servers This is my personal recommendation!

The only free one for servers i know is Clamwin.

ClamWin is a Free Antivirus program for Microsoft Windows 7 / Vista / XP / Me / 2000 / 98 and Windows Server 2008 and 2003.

I figured that a free virus software for a server might not be a great idea.  Besides McAfee Total Protection what other ones are good?  Currently we are using Kaspersky.

Dariusg McAfee had many blue screen problems in the past because of bad signatures. :-)
Panda Security for Enterprise had problems i agree with you, but Panda Cloud Protection didn't.
