Antivirus for Personal Use
Faculty, staff members and students may choose any antivirus software for personal equipment. We do have some recommendations though.
For Windows PCs, avast! Free Edition is a great program, as is AVG Free antivirus. Both of these software products can be found and installed at filehippo.com
For Macintosh computers, there is a home edition version of Sophos antivirus called Antivirus for Mac.
What are Viruses?
Have you ever wondered what viruses, worms, and trojans are? Wikipedia's article on malware provides all sorts of information about various computer threats including general information about what each of these threats are, how they are spread, and their history.
The best way to protect yourself from these threats is to make sure your operating system and antivirus software are up-to-date. Call the Helpdesk at 448-2222 if you have any questions about your computer's safety and security.
