Antivirus and other software

  • Wed, 09/03/2014 - 2:21pm - Posted by: Mike Cammilleri

    If you are bringing in your own laptop into the department, I strongly advise installing FREE anti-virus software available to you from campus. Norton Anti-Virus from the Department of Information Technology (DoIT) is a stripped-down, no advertising, no bloat/spy/mal-ware version of Antivirus that will not interfere with your computer. To download, use your campus NetID and password.

    Because of last week's campus network outage, our data center will need to be moved from city power which we are currently and temporarily using, to another temporary power source, and then back to proper power sources.

    *This means we will need to shut down each and every computer in Statistics before the end of this week as we move them to different power sources.

    This is short notice, but the work must get done. There will also be a second outage in the following week as we move everything back. What I would like from you is any information regarding long running jobs,... read more
