Default Anti-virus software

I am looking for a free anti virus software which I can place on my computer. The OS that's running on it is windows server 2000. AVG 7.0 does not work with this type of OS. Does anyone know of AV software that does and works really well? Any help is appreciated.

Yes, the Professional version will be the best, but its not free. I would get the Home Edition (free)
Are there any additional/special requirements for a server?

Are you familiar with free-av? It was listed under the free utilities on this page.
