Replacement for Live One-Care on SB Server 2003

Since Live One-Care is no longer available, I am looking for something similar for our Windows Small Business Server 2003 system. Any suggestions?

    Microsoft Security Essentials is the free replacement Microsoft security & Anti-Virus product.

    I'd recommend Sophos or Kaspersky security & Anti-Virus products. They are reasonably priced & pretty robust. All security products suck, Sophos & Kaspersky seem to suck less than most of the rest.

    I remember reading that, and as far as I can tell from their website it's true, Microsoft Security Essentials does not have a version for Small Business Server 2003, which is, of course, what we have. I'll look into those others you mentioned.

    To be more sure, I looked and did find this on their website:
    MSE cannot be installed on Server 2003. MSE installation is supported only on the following desktop operating systems:
    Windows XP X86
    Vista X86 and X64
    Windows 7 X86 and X64

    Didn't look at that, sorry. I'd still recomend Sophos or Kaspersky. I know they have server versions of their products.

    Sorry, it took so long to get back here. I went with MS Security Essentials being the cheapskate that I am.
