All of the computers in the Lab are equipped with anti-virus software. This software provides protection against viruses, as long as you do not ignore infection warnings or turn off the anti-viral software. As a student, you can download free Symantec anti-virus software for your own computer. It is highly recommended that you download Symantec if you do not have an existing anti-virus installed on your computer. It is very important to regularly update your anti-virus software for current virus definitions. See the documentation that comes with the software for information on how to update it. Go to to download Symantec and other software.
