Hi People,

I've messing around with Google to see if I can find any information about installing AV on our Remote App servers but haven't been very successful.

Recently a user opened a remote web published application and the local machine's antivirus found an infected file on the remote app server.
A few other machines also came up with this error however not many.

The question here is, should one install AV on remote app servers? Which files should be excluded? etc. etc.

Also, please note that the software in use is Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 with the RemoteApp role published as web applications. The RemoteApp server is also a virtual machine and Windows Server 2008 R2 is running HyperV as the parent.

Thanks in advance.
