What if the system is using windows server 2003 R2? My office using this

Keeping in mind that the "best" solution changes as technology changes, and that no solution is 100% effective(other 
than a reformat of a computer), try to find one that's consistently a top performer and doesn't have a reputation for 
slowing down the computer.  Most vendors offer free trials, and I'd highly recommend making use of those options to 
find one that works well with your business applications.  What works for one company may or may not work as well for 

My recommendation would be to look at Kaspersky.  It detects not only existing malware that might be on the computer, 
but works to fight infections as/before they happen.  If you're looking for something to inspect on-demand, take a look 
at MalwareBytes.  You may be familiar with their free tool, but they have corporate licensing available as well.  

That being said, it's really only part of the equation.  The trojans do need to communicate with someone, somewhere, so 
having some sort of network traffic filtering and monitoring in place to look for odd behavior should be a to-do item.  
That way, even if one of your systems becomes infected, it's an extra check in place to notice and hopefully prevent it 
from communicating with the control server(s).  

Thx before.
