Virus Protection and Disinfection
Viruses and other forms of malicious software are unfortunately a common occurrence. However, with diligence in performing system updates and routine scans, you can help protect your computer and data from being stolen or harmed by infections.
In addition to protection for the campus servers and networks, Valdosta State University employs several software packages to protect university-owned computers from damage and data theft.
While the Division of Information Technology does not provide repair services for computers that are not owned by the university, we recommend several software packages to help you protect your home computer.
Please note that faculty and staff should not need to install this software on institutional equipment since this process is centrally managed by IT.
