3) Microsoft does not list these Home Server variants in the Client Computer section of Microsoft Forefront Client Security 2010.
Microsoft not only doesn't list Home Servers among the supported OSs here, but the installer won't even run, so using the older version (but updating with latest signatures) might just be a dead-end or stop-gap measure, I'm not claiming this is an ideal long-term solution: Backstory/Rationale: As many have discussed, the well-regarded MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) antivirus solution also doesn't currently install on Windows Home Server 2011: Even if MSE does work again someday (as it did with the beta), it's only intended for up to 10 users in a small business, described here: windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security-essentials-eula So it would perhaps be even less likely it'll ever be licensed and/or allowed to install on my chosen slightly beefier (25 user) version of Windows Home Server 2011, called Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials, explained at Tinker Try.com/whywss2008r2essentials.
Unlike Microsoft Security Essentials, Forefront seems to have heuristics based scanning, although I’m not really sure how important that is.
See also Microsoft's Understanding Anti-Malware Technologies, but I can't seem to find an impartial head-to-head test, I guess time and testing will tell.
Instead, run Windows Update and click the link at the "Get updates for other Microsoft products.
