Sophos is available for Windows and Mac users.
Sophos replaces McAfee Anti-Virus Software at the LSE.
If you installed McAfee on your own computer under the School's licence you must now remove it, (as it will be out of date and will not work properly) and install Sophos software.
For full anti-virus protection use a full, professional package such as McAfee VirusScan - freely available to current LSE staff and students. See below for details.
Users must check microsoft updates are regularly installed to prevent home PCs and laptops from being attacked by computer worms and other 'malware' (= malicious software).
Your Windows PC or laptop can be configured to automatically install updates, (instructions here), ensuring that a computer is always up-to-date and not vulnerable to malicious software attacks.
