Because of the number of computers with Windows installed, virus and malware distributors often target Windows in order to have the most effect. Because of this, it is very important that Windows computers be properly secured. This is most easily done by installing the university provided Symantec Endpoint Protection (See Symantec Products - Installation Instructions).
In addition to having a working anti-virus program, Windows computers need to be updated on a regular basis to remain secure. See Windows - Using Windows Update for directions on how to keep Windows up-to-date.
