What are some effective free antivirus solutions available for Windows Server 2003? I tried AVG 10.0 but it gave me an error.

"it gave me error", without telling what was the error, is just about the worst thing you can say in a site like this. – grawity Oct 18 '10 at 18:29
FYI most AntiVirus software does not run on server versions of windows. in particular real time scanners – Lightly Salted Oct 18 '10 at 18:39
AVG for Windows Server 2003 is not free. I suspect that you tried to install the free version of AVG on your server and that the error you got was related to the fact that AVG Free cannot be installed on that operating system. – joeqwerty Oct 18 '10 at 20:01

This is pretty subjective, but you could try ClamAV. It should run on Windows Server 2003. Other compatible antivirus programs are listed in this TechNet thread.

Try Comodo Internet Security. It runs on my Windows Web Server 2008 R2 x64 and should run on Windows Server 2003 too.

It's free to both business and home users.
