Any Windows or Mac OS computer that connects to the network on campus is required to have the University's provided Sophos Antivirus installed. If your computer reports it found a virus, please read the message in its entirety. If it deleted the virus, you are fine. If the virus was left alone or quarantined, please contact the Help Desk for removal instructions. Viruses can cause data loss and cause programs to lose functionality. Please do not delay action if you have been notified you have a virus. Serious damage to your computer and/or the network could occur.
