Antivirus software for server and clients

Hi,

I have 20 servers and almost 50 workstations in the company's lan, I used for 3 years the TrendMicroAntivirus but it is not good at all.
I have decided to change it, but I don't know which one it could be good to install it on both the servers and clients.
Notice that I need a software with the possibility to protect the uninstallation or the deactivation of it with a password.

On my servers, I have windows 2003 server editions, so for me it could be good one software without thinking about the issues on windows 2008 servers, do you advice me Symantec Endpoint?
Avg could not be installed on the server, and there is no version to manage the workstations from a console, is this right?
Symantec Endpoint still have issues with Windows 2003 Server as well not as much with Windows 2008 Servers but still had issues stopping network communication. My recommendation stay away from SEP.
Trend Micro OfficeScan Corporate Edition 10.5 works very well.  If that's what you're using, what kind of problem have you had with it?

We have been usiing forefront on the ervers and MS security essentials on the clients. Since these are
both MS products we get updates thru WSUS thus one less thing to update. MS security essentials
developed on of Forefront. No complaints so far. We had been using symantec for years but were
having issues with it.

VIPRE Enterprise; as I said "The VIPRE management console offers easy deployment and a LOT of customization."
