Does AntiVir also protect the client files?

No, not directly. AntiVir only protects the server directly and monitors all file actions executed by the clients on the server, e.g. opening, saving and closing documents, etc. In other words, the data saved on the server by the clients are protected. The data on the client PCs themselves are not monitored, however (it makes no sense to transport such vast quantities of data over the LAN to the server merely for checking).
