    ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS install anti-virus software.
    Configure it to avoid databases, log files, or other commonly locked files, but get it on there!
    Lock it down and harden it too. And if you can, create a script or use a package to verify that nothing has changed on your webpages, or alert you if it does.

    Cheers!
    Mark

    Greetings

    Should IIS have anti-virus installed on them. I know I would do it for a
    fileserver but for IIS, I rather lock it down.

    Thanks.
