Antivirus Information

All students connecting to any part of the Campbell University network with a Windows based computer on any campus are required to maintain a current, subscription-based, automatically updated anti-virus solution on their computer.

There are many choices that will work. One of our favorites is AVG antivirus. It has both a free and a paid subscription service. Many of us in Computing Services use AVG on our own machines. The free version can be downloaded here.  Another choice for students using Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 is Microsoft Security Essentials.  If you need assistance installing or updating an antivirus product, please contact the helpdesk.

Students with the Apple OS X operating system may want to try Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition.
