Protecting Your Computer

Virus Protection

In order to access the campus network your personal computer will need to have virus protection software installed. As an Augustana College student you can install Symantec Endpoint Anti-Virus on your computer.

This software is free and does not need to be renewed. Contact Wendy Ramsdale, Student Computing Consultant (Sorensen 162) for download instructions.

Once the software is loaded the Live Update should be scheduled to run automatically so your computer will always have the most recent virus definitions.

Spyware & Adware

Students are responsible for maintaining their personal computer and keeping it free from spyware and adware. Classes are offered on how to clear spyware and adware from your computer. Links to free software that can help you keep spyware and adware can be found here. If you still need assistance ITS will repair your computer at the rate of $35 per hour.
