Can I fix my computer virus problem myself?

If you have received only one letter from the Security Incident Response Team, you may clean your computer yourself.

If you have received multiple notices, or are uncomfortable fixing the problem yourself, seek help at a professional repair service.

UB recommends that students install Symantec EndPoint Protection (antivirus and firewall) to prevent computers from becoming infected. Scans can also be run to find and remove viruses.
