Is there a reason to put an AV on a thin client?  Say if the user running everything from the server (office,app).  Disable local admin provileges, lock the computer down, no usb drives.

    Accepted Solution

    What about viruses coming in from the web side?

    Do you have a proxy in place that will block that?

    If so, then there 'should' be no need for an antivirus.

    I am more concern about the malware and spyware.  Good idea about the proxy.
