Best Antivirus software to protect a Windows 2003 Server ?

Q: Best Antivirus software to protect a Windows 2003 Server ?

Hi,

can anyone here tell me from his experiences what is the best Anti Virus software to protect a Windows 2003 Server? The server doesn't run an Microsoft Exchange Server.....this Server runs only a Microsoft SQL 2005 Server.

Regards,

Wojtek

Preferred Solution: Best Antivirus software to protect a Windows 2003 Server ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

All of a sudden today:

"Windows reports that computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the scan your computer. Your system might be at risk now."

Other windows popping up:
SPYWARE ALERT!
Antivirus software alert
"Application cannot be executed. The file wscntfy.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?"

Can't run McAfee, or Malware, internet won't work.....but internet sites are popping up....not good ones!

I ran Malware in safe mode. it had picked up two infections. they were removed. but still the exact same thing is happenning. and now i am getting all the pop screens plus a red-x-shield in the bottom popping up a lot too

PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hello.

Please subscribe to your topic so that you will be notified as soon as I post a reply, instead of you having to check the topic all of the time. This will allow you to get an email notification when I reply.

To subscribe, go to your topic, and at the top right hand corner by your first post, click the Options button and then click Track this topic. The bullet the immediate notification bubble. Then press submit.

Lets take a look with Malwarebytes

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here:
Malwarebytes
Please rename the file BEFORE downloading to zztoy.exe instead of mbam-setup.exe

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Double Click zztoy.exe to install the application.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy&Paste the entire MBAM report (even if it does not find anything) in your next reply

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
If Malwarebytes won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run. Then post your MBAM log. Try this in safe mode, and connect to the internet like a speeding bullet, turn the internet on before the computer is turned on.

A:Looking for a Free antivirus for windows server 2003

Kinda hard to find free AVs for server. In the past people reported acceptable results with these:

1. Rising Antivirus Free Edition - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

2. My Free Antivirus zum Download auf Freeware.de

3. Free Antivirus for Windows - Open source GPL virus scanner

In the case of #1, it used to work on Server 2003 but now only lists server 2008. However, other forum threads indicate it still works with server 2003. Your milage may vary.

#2 is a German product. Roughly translated it protects against internet threats such as viruses, trojans and worms. It also has automatic updates to its data base to keep new threats from harming you.

Somebody please help me. A walkthrough would be great. This is my problem. I have a server at work, I am a computer engineer, however the problem is I have not had much experience with servers. My task is to install some software onto the server (Windows Server 2003) so that the software can then be accessed and run on each client computer (PC that is connected to the server)

Would anyone have any tips, or be able to walk me through doing this ?

Please help, and thanks.

I have a 2 PCs that are randomly powering off. One more than the other. Both are giving the same symptoms but I have no clue how to figure out what is going on. I need help from a software to figure these out.

1) Event logs are clean no stop signs or exclamtion points prior to shutdown.
2) Just gives an indicator last shutdown was unexpected.
3) memtest runs through fine.
4) Shutdown is 100% random not any timed thing.
5) Happens when idle and at full use.
6) No blue screen at all.
7) No dump files.
8) Different power sources have been used/on top of the fact one is a laptop with a fine battery.

I am all out of troubleshooting ideas. Any thoughts on something that is a realtime system monitor that might catch WHY these systems are shutting down?

Hi,

I have a set of 5 machines - 2 desktops (one being a thin client and the other to function as a 'server' ) and 3 notebooks. I was wondering what was the difference b/w the 2 versions Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003. Is it true one cannot use a thin client but need a regular cpu setup to use Small Business Server 2003 ?

There is a difference in costs and since i have windows 2000 on the desktops and xp on the notebooks wondered if i needed to shell out so much more $$ for the Windows Server 2003 . I plan to put in a wireless networking system to link all the 5 machines.

Thanks in advance for any and all advise.

A:Solved: Difference b/w Windows Server 2003 and Small Business Server 2003

Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server has the following restrictions:
- Only one computer in a domain can be running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server must be the root of the Active Directory® forest.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server cannot trust any other domains.
- A Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server domain cannot have any child domains.
- Each additional server must have a Windows Small Business Server 2003 client access license (CAL). You can use CALs for each user or for each device.
The standard edition of Windows Small Business Server 2003 includes Windows Server 2003 technologies, including fax service, firewall service, and remote-access service. Additionally, it includes Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, enhanced tools for server monitoring and administration, and an out-of-the-box solution for internal Web sites. The standard edition is ideal for customers who do not require the higher-level functionality included in the premium edition

The premium edition includes everything in the standard edition, plus Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000, and Microsoft FrontPage® 2003. The premium edition is ideal for small businesses with more demanding IT needs, such as data-intensive line-of-business applications, or advanced firewall and Web-caching capabilities

The standard edition has most of the stuffs inside.

I have a terabyte raid5 running on a server 2003 box. It has a separate system drive. I was wondering, if that system drives fails and I reload 2003 on another drive, will it pick up that software raid5 configuration and all the data? Thanks.
 

A:Software Raid5 in Server 2003

If the OS is not part of the array and you have installed applications on the array you will have to restore those applications as well. I am not even sure you can make the OS part of an RAID 5 array. Your best bet would be to restore the OS volume from a full backup...the OS won't know the difference since the array looks like one big drive to it.

I will start by saying what I have been using for desktop computers. I like the way Ghost 15 works. It lets me set the days of the week or month to back up and allows me to specify how many backups it saves and deletes the oldest backup image as it makes a new one.

If Ghost 15 would work on Windows 2003 Server, I would be well pleased.

What is there that is similar that will work on Windows 2003 Server?

And that doesn't cost a fortune?

I was just thinking doing downloading AVG free, Adaware SE, Spybot, and Spyblaster for protection for my clients. Why don't I store these install files this time? Then I thought why not just get WMI files of them if possible. Then I realized I'm a total noob to pushing out things and should probably ask how is the preferred method before doing it. Now I know that MS Server 2003 can push out things but I am unclear about 2 things.

1. Where should you store those WMI files you want to push out to select later?

2. If I can't get a WMI file is there a converter or should I get a third party product that can push out?

Anyone that can help would be great, right now I'm just storing the .exe files in a folder on the server. I know in theory you can do it, I just haven't done it yet with anything.

Currently we are on an NT network with a few 2000 servers tossed in. Today I learned that the plan is to migrate everything to Linux. Lets assume that this only applies to the servers and that the users will still operate with 98/nt/2000/xp. What are your thoughts on this?

I put this in this forum for a reason. Because I'd rather get the advice from 2000 and 2003 experts who know what Linux cannot replace than to hear the Linux fanboys and anti-Microsoft activists praise it to the high heavens.

What would your concerns be if this was done on your network? What problems have you encountered if you'd tried this? Or what successes? Know of any businesses that have done this successfully?

Hi

I need to set a folder on a server at work to be accessible as read only or full access depending on the password. The server is running Windows 98 SE but the client computers are using windows XP home. The trouble is that the windows XP home computers dont ask for passwords when i try to access the folder. Is it possible to make the windows XP home computers ask for a password when i try to access the folder across the network to secure the folder?

Please give me your feedback

A:Non Admin not able to connect OPC server in Windows Server 2003

From what I've read on this thread, you'll need to set computer-wide DCOM security permissions. You'll want to peruse that thread.

On another note, this isn't really the best spot for this question. An error message isn't a crash, hang or bsod, and the situation is more relevant to specifically the Windows Server section (even though OPC servers can and often do exist in many client versions of Windows). You'll be able to receive more help there, as it's pertinent to your needs.

We had:

1) 1 Windows Server 2003 running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 workstations.

We now want to have:

1) 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

Hi guys What free Antivirus software for servers What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea Info My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet He uses laptops at the most to access files on the server However at some points he will update Windows Server Server ? Free Antivirus e.g. for Server Windows 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet and obviously leave himself open Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008 to malware etc for a short time The cost Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008 of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for workstations upwards and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down Questions I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution Also if he got Malware on it e g Rootkit or Delta would current Bleeping Computer tools e g Rkill RogueKiller etc still work on the server - or does it require another approach I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open Thanks in advance guys

A:Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008

The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
 
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.

When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

I found the answer.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/newsgroup...-DC48AB0DA5C9&dglist=&ptlist=&exp=&sloc=en-us

The above discussion says that a service must enter a running state before a COM server calls CoRergisterClassObject. So I guess its a development problem.

Not sure why it only manifests on Windows Server 2003 though.

These are from my notes when I've done this. I am showing a basic setup. You can do much more than this, but it would require a complete tutorial to identify everything.

* Assumed:
- Windows 2003 Server is installed, and has a static intranet IP@
- Your internet router is set to route port 80 to this box
- You have addressed any firewall issues along the way
- Your home page is named "Default.htm"
- You are not using virtual directories
- You want static page delivery (no applications / scripts / etc)

* Application Server Role Setup
- Start "Configure Your Server Wizard"
- Select "Application Server" and press "Next"
- Application Server Option screen
+ select "FrontPage Server Extensions"
+ select "Enable ASP.NET"
+ press "Next", then "Finish"

* Create web site
- rt-click on "Web Sites" / new / Web Site
- Web Site Description screen
+ Description --> <fill in>
- IP Address & Port screen
+ Enter IP Address --> "All Unassigned"
+ TCP port --> 80
+ Host header --> <leave blank>
- Web Site Home Directory screen
+ Path --> <folder holding your pages>
+ "Allow anonymous access" --> <allow>
- Web Site Access Permissions screen
+ "Read" --> select
+ "Run scripts" --> de-select
+ "Execute" --> de-select
+ "Write" --> de-select
+ "Browse" --> de-select
- rt-click on web site / Permissions
+ add "Everyone" for "Read & Exec" & "List Folder Contents" & "Read"

* Set security permissions on the www folders
- Everyone --> read
- {owner} --> full

* Create your home page in specified folder, with name "default.htm"

I hope this helps.

Hi,

Can I have a technical explanation for this?

ASP is a Microsoft website language, and so I'd assume you need Microsoft's IIS webserver to use it (or that IIS would provide the best support for it). PHP should work on a Linux server without any trouble.

I think your looking for group policies - From any client that is logged on with a User ID that has domain admin rights open up mmc (start/run/mmc/enter). Then in the MMC editor go to File/Add-Remove Snap-in/Add button/Group Policy Object editor/ Then you can do local computer or browse for Default domain policy.

This deals with all the GPO's for the domain.

Interesting problem and hope that someone can help Am running a small lt user network using Win k server with a domain All clients are XP Pro and using sharing can access requisite folders and files with no problem and can block domain users via sharing from accessing secure folders I have Vista Home Premium laptop that can access Windows server 2003 to VHP the domain shares with no problem VHP to Windows 2003 server except for the fact that there is one folder with xls VHP to Windows 2003 server files that the Vista user can see and can write VHP to Windows 2003 server a file to that folder as they have Full access to that folder However they can access one of the xls files just fine and can change it and so forth The other two xls files they receive quot Access denied quot All xls files are of the same type and created with no difference as they are of different locations within the organization Same xls file just different data The Vista user logs onto his laptop using the same username and password as his domain account Interesting sidelight as when he logs onto an XP Pro workstation using his credentials log onto the domain he receives the same error for the xls files I have deleted and recreated his domain account and also recreated the share and security permissions on the folder in question No one else has any issues with this Does anyone have any thoughts as to the cause The folder in question is a child folder of a parent folder that gives everyone Full access but does not inherit permissions TIA Saavik

A:windows server 2003

Basically when you setup your server, you'll be pointing all of them to your domain which you can setup certain restrictions and controls for the entire domain. You'll also be able to restrict access to specific users and/or groups (Windows XP Pro also has this function, just you have to do the following: Open "My Computer", go to Tools -> Folder Options. Select the "View" tab and scroll to the bottom. Then, uncheck the "Simple File Sharing" at the very bottom). For more information on "CAL", click here.. You'll be able to leave the clients running XP Pro. In response to your licensing question, it depends on the software as many will require you to purchase "server" or "multi-user" licenses if you're running a server on the system. So, you'll need to read the licensing agreement for the particular software to see for sure. In response to contact information, etc...you'll be able to use Microsoft Outlook Exchange server (email) for setting up scheduling and contact lists. You will not need a new copy of Office as your current version should work nicely with Exchange. (There's a setting for "Microsoft Exchange Server" along with your pop3, etc choices.) What exactly do you mean by access to programs? Hosted on the server? You should just set up the programs on certain computers under the users login. If you really don't want a user to access a specific program, you can login to that client machine under administrator, select your "Security" tab, and remove their access to the specific directory (that the program is located in).

Not best, but better is AVG or Avast.

Hitman pro is free for scan system but you need to buy the product if you try to remove viruses too.
Zemana AntiMalware and Malwarebytes antimalware is free for scanning system and remove malwares.

Try CCleaner for Privacy and Optimisation.

A:Windows 7 + Server 2003 Issues

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Having roaming profiles configured can be really daunting, you'll experience sluggishness in your network.
You might have a peek of how Folder Redirection is setup. Setup a small lab and see if this works for you.

Another thing that's need to be configured correctly is the Server Roles, it's important that the DHCP and DNS'es are handled by your Windows Server 2003.

The Specs of your Server's hardware is also important, make sure that it's RAID configured with a good amount of RAM. Network hardware such as Gig switches/NICS also play a big role on the transfer rates.

Do you have a Network Attached Storage as a file server, rather than using your Windows Server as a file Server? Just another thought.

Hope this helps.

A:Connecting XP PRO to Windows 2003 Server

I would put router to the switch and connect everything to the switch.
Domain vs Workgroups
Domains:
Advantages
1. One location for all user accounts, groups and computers, passwords are same for all computers.
2. Easier and quicker to maintain
3. Scales easier if you add more users and computers

Disadvantages
1. Requires a windows server
2. Complex to set up

Workgroups:
Advantages
1. Useful for small networks (10 or less computers)
2. Very easy to setup
3. No additional knowledge required
4. No server required.

Disadvantages
1. Need to setup account and password on each and every machine.
2. Passwords can become out of sync, if changed on one computer and not others
3. No easily scalable. If using more than 10 computers, the number of accounts to set up increases a lot more
4. More time required to setup for new users!
5. If using file sharing, you may reach the 10 max simultaneous connections limit

A:Windows Server 2003 BSOD

Which Antivirus and Personal 3rd party Firewall are you using?
Do you have other protection apps starting with Windows?

If you can get to Safe Mode, uninstall your 3rd party Firewall, and then run a few Malware scans from this guide: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html
If you want your logs checked you will need to create a New Topic in the Virus & Malware removal forum

By the way, I'm thinking faulty personal firewall or Malware infection

I really want to obtain Windows Server 2003 SP1 beta to see if it will fix an OS problem I have.

If anyone has a mirror DL site or ftp server with it, i'd really like to hear from you please!

Its just a beta so theres no legal problem with sharing... Thanks.

Can a Windows 2003 Domain Controller communicate with a Windows 2000 Domain Controller? The reason I ask this is that I want to upgrade my Domain Contoller to Windows 2003, but want to have the backup Windows 2000 machine running as a backup Domain Controller.
 

A:Windows 2003 and 2000 server

Yes. When you install active directory just do a new DC in an existing forest. Also there is an option for windows 2000 compatibility. It's pretty self explanatory as you go along.

Hello:

I have a question about licensing for Windows Server 2003.
This is what I have:

Total Servers: 15

Main Office:
12 Servers
- PDC & BDC
- Print Server
- Admin Server
- 3 Webservers
- Mail Server
- 2 Firewalls
- App Server
- Remote Server

Remote Office
3 Servers
- PDC
- Firewall
- File Server

How do you know how many licenses do i need to have.
I have about 225 users & computers

Any advice would help!?
Thanks!
 

A:Windows Server 2003 Licensing

IMHO this is a question best answered by a Microsoft professional. What it really comes down to is which of those 225 clients accesses which server and the licensing method your organization uses (are you using per seat, user, or CPU licensing?).

Navigating Microsoft's licensing maze is problematic at best. Call the local MS office and make someone earn their weekly paycheck.

Hi,

I have a windows 2003 server which has 2 LAN adopter and only 1 is connected and active.
It keeps on disconnecting for some reason. It says "Cable unplugged".
But when I disable it and enable it again, it works fine. After some time ( 1 day or so) the same problem comes.

Please help.

Hi everyone,

Would everyone tell me how to get windows server 2003 with 2 NICs act like the router ?

Here is my plan which I'd like to do:

ISP connection --> Router A ---> switch A --> windows server 2003---> switch B--> all clients (10.10.x.x)

The windows server 2003 has 2 nics, 1 nic is set with static ip which i have from ISP, the other nic that i like to use to connect to switch B.

What do i have to do here ? NAT ? DNS ? I know that i need DHCP for sure, but how to make them work together still is the myth for me ...

Thanks.

I need some help with getting it online. Actually getting it to see the internet is what I need.

We have a very small business at home and are setting up our own server. I've gotten it installed and am on the checklist of things to do still. One is to allow the server online. Can'[t get there yet.

If anyone has done this, could you please let me know how to do it in PLAIN English not Microsoftspeak?. Liz

Greetings! Although I have been using ComboFix for quite some time on XP platforms here at the school, I have never tried it on a server platform yet. Recently had found out that the server had been infected (the smart alec developer of the school software infected it with a USB flash drive). I can't update our Symantec Corporate Ed Client because the infection is blocking the update.

It is one of those autorun.inf infections.

My question is: Can I use Combofix to solve this on the Win 2003 Server platform?

TIA

A:Infected Windows Server 2003

Discussion pertaining to how Combofx works, what it can or cannot do, what the log results mean, any future plans, etc is not available to the public in order to safeguard and protect the integrity of the tool from malware writers. As such, the developer does not want his tool discussed outside of private forums and therefore we cannot answer specific questions.
