Default free corporate antivirus solution

Does anyone know of any free Antivirus client/server software for windows? I am looking for a server program that runs a service on the server which has all the definitions, then a client is installed on all other servers and workstations and use the defs from the server to scan against.

thanks.

Usually all freeware is for personal home use only. If you want to use freeware in a work env it usually requires purchase of a license. A good example is spybot search and destroy..freeware? yep, but for home only. Have it installed on hundreds of PC's in a work env without paying=trouble. I actually dealt with one of the licensing people over at spybot for quite a while and he was very informative.

I am told that AVG is the closet thing that you are going to find to what you are looking for.
