    Hi,
    I have a windows Vps (Windows Server 2008 R2 installed)
    I don't know whether or not Windows Firewall and Essential are enough for security purposes (Virus , Spywares and Attacks)?
    If not, what should I install on the Vps(Need free service)?

    Thanks

    Windows Firewall is definitely essential, don't disable that even if you've a very good reason. Regarding security software, don't use Essentials, they will slow down your VPS. Get the following:

    Software Security:
    - CalmWin Antivirus - Free & OpenSource - Windows Server 2008 R2 Supported.
    - Malwarebyte - Free Malware scanner - Windows Server 2008 R2 Supported.
    - Change your default RDP port.

    CleanUp & Speeding tools:
    - CCleaner - Very handy to clean up your VPS and speed things up from time to time
    - Clean UP - Another handy software to clean you some of the files that CCleaner can't clean.

    Apart from the above ones, you don't anything else
