Virus Protection


McAfee Virus Update/Upgrade Information 

Technology Services is currently installing McAfee VirusScan Enterprise edition, version 7.0 on all computers. The software is pre-configured to automatically update the virus definition (DAT) files at 9am each morning.  DAT files ensure that your virus protection is constantly updated as cures for new virus threats are published.


NOTE:  Your computer must be active (running) to run an update task. If your computer is not operating when the task is scheduled to start, the task starts at the next scheduled time if the computer is active, or when the computer starts if you selected the Run missed task option on the Schedule Settings, Schedule tab.


 If you are off campus you can request a copy of McAfee Virus Protection for home use.


Call the UHV Helpdesk at Ext. 4399 (361-570-4399 from off campus) if you have questions or need assistance.
