    Norton AV Corporate Edition I think is the best available. Several makers have made versions compatible with this OS. Even one freebie AFAIK has released a version compatible:

    What server operating systems are supported by AVG?
    AVG is fully compatible with Windows NT4/2000/2003 servers.


    Hope that helps.

    Yep! Stick with Norton. Only the Corp Edition will install on a Server OS.

    McAfee

    This is a bit of a late entry but I've been using McAfee now for a coupler of years both at home and I look after it for my company and I've never had any major dramas. They have also just released a desktop firewall product which runs along side it and it has a lot more features than XP or XPSP2. Worth a look. All our W2K & W2K3 servers have it and run fine. There are also good features on setting auto scans and such like.
    Cheers

    Just wanted to mention that I tried McAfee Enterprise on my 2003 Server and it runs great! I'm now using it on all my standard workstations too. The auto updating and auto scanning features work flawlessly and there are countless other scheduling options.

    What is the name of the Firewall Hammy? I've tried McAfee Personal Firewall and while it has heaps of features and a great interface, it is lacking in other areas.
