    hi,

    i just got a new VPS.
    and i see there is no anti virus of any kind.

    what should i do about security issues?
    what to i need to add?
    what do i need to config in the VPS settings? (windows server 2008)

    thanks,

    Matan

    The re-image the box, but the license is linked to the HDD id (or something similar I believe), so until you let scrapebox know, or they change their license to another computer it will remain active there.

    Windows Update + Ms Security Essentials is enough... unless you running un-licensed cracked copies
