Hello. I am working on a friends machine that seems to have a nasty infection. This machine is a dedicated server running Windows Server 2003 Web. Everything I am doing to it is via remote desktop which is making it a little more of a challenge. Web browsing on the server was incredibly slow when he asked me to take a look at it. I figured he was infected with something so I was going to try and install a few things on it and run a few scans, only to find that all of the sites that I found to use are blocked or disable by whatever is infecting the server. Any attempt to access an anti-virus or anti-malware website results in a message stating server cannot be found. Any other website can be accessed though.

There is an FTP server running on this machine, so I do have that availability to FTP to the server to get any file or program to it that I need to. Please just let me know what you need from me and I will get it up here as soon as I can. I am a fairly experienced user and can grasp things pretty easily. Thanks for your time, I greatly appreciate it.

If it doesn't block you from softpedia or download.com, the get the anti virus software from their sites instead. Hopefully it won't block them. When they are downloaded, rename the file names.

I have tried that. I installed PC-Tools Anti Virus since it is the only free AV out there I know that works on Server 2003. It installs ok, but it seems to stall when running and it is blocked from updating. I have tried a few other programs, but they all seem to do the same thing. They either act like they are loading and I never see the main screen pop up or the program just hangs and I have to kill the process using task manager. Every once in a while the program will load so you can see it, but you can't get it to do anything and cannot update itself.
