Antivirus Software


You must follow safe computing practices, run antivirus software AND have up-to-date virus definition files to protect yourself against the latest computer viruses. We encourage installing antivirus programs on all of your personally-owned computers.

Below are some suggested antivius applications that are freely available.  Please note that you should only run ONE antivirus program at a time.
