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.

Public service announcements:

1) All public PCs at ESF require users to login using their ESFiD username and password; when asked, enter this information to gain access to public computing resources at ESF.


2) Please switch to USB thumb-drives or external hard drives for all of your larger data storage needs (A.k.a USB jump-drives or USB flash-disks). Each student and faculty members also as 10GB of network storage, located in your H-drive. It is strongly encouraged you do not use that storage space for larger GIS or CAD projects.

Floppy Disks, Zip disks and even DVD-ROM, are very old technology with some serious reliability and capacity issues. As a result, PC manufacturers have left these storage options off PCs altogether. As new PCs are purchased for the ESF Computing Center, they will not come with the ability to use media of these types. USB thumb-drives (or hard drives) or network storage will be the only way to save your work, and take it with you, from these PCs.
