Upload the files into a quarantine area. Purchase a virus scanning program that is designed to work with servers (Mostly this means that you should be able to name a file and it will check it, rather than scanning the entire machine every time).
When a file comes into the quarantine area, scan it, then (assuming it passes), move it to its final destination.


An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
