Virus Protection


Here are some suggestions for protecting your computer from viruses:

  • Use SUNY Oswego-provided Sophos Antivirus software.
  • Make sure that antivirus software is kept up to date.
  • Never open an email attachment unless you scan it for viruses first.
  • Never open an email attachment if it is from someone you don’t know, or if it is from someone you know but you did not request a file from said person.
  • Update your operating system frequently via Windows Update or Apple's System Update.
