Hi,

I'm looking real time scanner/Anti virus/application for my 2 Windows VPS.

users upload files/folders several times in a week, sometimes it contains virus, Malware, suspicious text, shell scripting, which is dangerous for others users.

so any anti virus which available which auto scan file/folders  when anybody upload files and infected files put in trash/quarantine etc ?

Both OS are 2003 & 2008 Server.

At the university where I work at we use MS Forefront Endpoint, it should do what you are looking for. This is the commercial version of MS security Essentials but is designed for a commercial environment such as using on servers etc.

Forefront is great. I don't suggest going for a free app for your servers. Comodo Endpoint is great too (I use them). Malwarebytes Pro will also do the trick and the cost is a very low price for lifetime.

There are tons of AV apps to chose from. If you want a free one, I suggest Microsoft Essentials which is a free download from Microsoft. It works well.

There are many AV reviews online.  My biggest concern with AV products is the accuracy in identifying spyware, attacks and real time protection.

Here is a link to many apps in a review. Take a look and make a decision.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

The problem with asking the AV question is that you will get as many different opinions as there are people answering your question(as you can already see).  Indeed make your own decision using the comparative sites.
