    Hey guys, I need some recommendation of Anti Virus programs for VPS using Windows Server as its OS.

    In the past, I used to use Microsoft Security Essentials and it was awesome - lightweight, fast, and doesn't affect my VPS performance at all.

    But now my VPSs are all using Windows Sever and MSE isn't supported in Windows Server OS.
    So I need some recommendations... anti-virus that is fast, lightweight and doesn't eat much resources.

    I know Eset is one of them. And AVG maybe?

    Agree with roy all the way. Just choose avg. They get the job done and it doesnt annoy you. Especially if you have other users.
