Use current antivirus software at home

Please use current, up-to-date antivirus software on your home PC. This will help protect both you and the ESF Campus.


Remember: There is no such thing as a truly reliable automatic system. Never assume that your antivirus software is being updated -- check it.

Floppy Disks, and even Zip disks, are very old technology with some serious reliability and capacity issues. As a result, PC manufacturers have left Zip drives off PCs altogether and, increasingly, do not offer Floppy drives as an option. The next time new PCs are purchased for the ESF Computing Center, they will not come with Floppy disk drives or Zip drives. USB thumb-drives or network storage will be the only way to save your work, and take it with you, from these PCs.
