Virus Protection

Visit our FAQ site for information about antivirus.

Trend Micro Antivirus is available to all UNC Charlotte students.

A virus spreads very quickly and antivirus software can only be a reactive solution against a newly spawned virus.

  1. Install an antivirus software program and scan email attachments and software before opening.
  2. Install the latest security updates for  Windows or Mac operating systems.
  3. Be cautious of email attachments, even when you know the sender.
  4. Turn off file sharing programs like BitTorrent. Remember downloading copyrighted material violates Appropriate Use and University Policy.
