Virus protection

Antivirus software helps protect your computer against harmful software which is written to take advantage of your computer system and potentially transmit, destroy or change important information on your computer. It is very important that you not only have an Antivirus program installed but that you constantly update it. Luckily most programs will automatically update themselves given that you have scheduled it to do so and that you have an internet connection at the time it tries to update. 

LITS requires you have an up-to-date antivirus software installed on your computer before you connect to the campus network.   There are many anti-virus software tools available.  We have used Sophos Home and AVG as free home software options.

These programs are commonly used to help protect computers from Malware.  Remember if you see any popups on your computer that seem suspicious, please POWER your computer OFF, and do not click your mouse on any open windows.
