Did you know that Fordham University provides free antivirus protection to all students, faculty and staff? We provide this protection because a protected computer is essential to keeping your personal information safe and, in some cases (especially for faculty and staff), information about other people at Fordham.
For more information and a download link for free software, see our Antivirus Protection webpage.
Maintain antivirus software on your computer and run regular scans to ensure that your system is safe and sound. This will give you the assurance that all is running smoothly. It will secure your computer against any hidden viruses or phishing hooks lurking in the depths of your computer.
To detect the latest viruses, use the most current version of your antivirus software. Make sure to run a full virus scan of your computer at least once a month. Your software can be configured to run automatic updates and scans that run in the background.
