    I am fairly new to the windows Server family and I am having problems with my
    server using high bandwidth. I am pretty sure I have spyware on my server but
    I have let my spyware software run and it never completes the scan...It scans
    for 15 hours and still not complete.The Anti virus I have on there takes up
    to 2 days to finish. Do you know what could be the problem. I am at a loss.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Justin,

    Thanks for posting here.

    For your description, I understand that the spyware software can not
    complete the scan task for long time. If I am off base, please don't
    hesitate to let me know.

    To troubleshooting the issue, please disconnect from the Internet, stop all
    non-essential services such as Exchange, ISA, SQL, DHCP, DNS services and
    all other 3rd party services and then re-scan the server.

    To stop services. you can follow these steps:
    a. Click "Start", point to "Programs", point to "Administrative
    Tools", and then click "Services".
    b. Stop all non-essential services.

    How about the results?

    The behavior you described of the syyware software may also be a result of
    virus infection so we cannot guarantee it should work. You can call CSS
    directly and we have virus support with no charge.
