You could setup a batch job on your windows machine to periodically copy 
your remote uploads directory to your PC. Setup your virus checker to 
make sure it scans all new files, and auto-deletes/moves infected files. 
Then the job can simply copy the remaining files back over to the remote 
uploads directory, removing the existing files.

You could probably automate all this with a backup tool. I'm familiar 
with SyncBack, and it seems to me that could be setup to perform the 
copy/sync process, and the virus scanner will process all new files for 
you. There are no doubt other ways of doing this.
