One of the little known facts about MSE is that it can be used as an antivirus solution on Windows 2008 R2 Server. I use Windows 2008 R2 Datacenter as my workstation OS and I have been looking around for a good antivirus solution to be used with my OS and tried out many of the free antivirus softwares and none of them would even get installed on the Server machine, but as it turns out MSE works just fine on WIN2008 R2. it is free and doesn’t hog too much resources also.

You can get it from here http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/mse.aspx

I was recently consulting some IT support NYC specialist about what antivirus should I buy for my computer and they all said different ones. I too had 2 all times favorite: Kaspersky and NOD32. Which one would indicate for personal use and some games/gaming? I heard that Kaspersky uses a lot of ram and it is not indicated if you are a gamer. Is that true?

Thank you for this information, I have just installed Microsoft Security Essentials onto Windows Server 2008 Standard 32 bit edition with Service pack 2 which I am running on a VPS as my remote workstation.
It works great, when I did this last time I used a paid for AntiVirus as could not find a free one that would run on a Windows Server.

MSSE is of course better than nothing however it's fallen markedly from it's previously excellent position on AV-Tests comparison charts - most worryingly in the detection area where it's score is basically abysmal ATM.

Installed it on a W2K8r2 (trial) server with no problems at all. It updates its signatures as configured. I tested the realtime detection of a virus file (eicar.txt fake virus) and it detected it within about 2 seconds. So what's the problem, apart from the fact that has seemingly got no official M$-blessing?!
