Antivirus Security

The Antivirus Security Center provides information on how to protect your computer from viruses and support for the Symantec Endpoint Protection for the PC and the Mac at the University of Iowa.

Important change to Symantec licensing:

The University of Iowa's site license for Symantec Endpoint Protection expired on June 30, 2013. As a result, ITS no longer provides Symantec Endpoint Protection antivirus to students, faculty and staff for personal/home user. As of June 30, 2013 Symantec needs to be uninstalled from all personal and departmental computers.

See the articles below for instructions for uninstalling Symantec Endpoint Protection on your computer, as well as additional information and resources for antivirus for home use, removing and troubleshooting issues with viruses, and antivirus software.
