Avoid stress at the start of term – scan your computer during the Easter vacation
At the start of every term we need to check that your device has the latest anti-virus and anti-spyware updates and system patches. It’s an important process that keeps your devices and our networks secure. If your computer doesn’t pass through the scan – you won’t be able to connect it to the University’s student network. Make sure you can get connected straight away by using our remote scan facility which is available from 11th April 2017.
