Clam seems to work well on our linux servers and windows boxes -- I  
frankly haven't bothered with AV for Macintosh, which is probably  
kind of dumb, but......

I know we cam across a windows virus a couple of days ago that Clam  
was the first to detect and quarantine -- which I thought was pretty  
cool for Open Source software.

At my last job we used Sophos, and the is an option to quarantine  
(move) infected files, next time I work on an old machine I will dig  
up the preferences and let you know where the option is.
