McAfee License Expires 2012

The license for the university’s current Windows antivirus solution, McAfee VirusScan, expires June 2012 and will not be renewed.

In addition, this website will be decommissioned June 30, 2012. Please bookmark safecomputing.umich.edu/antivirus now.

Microsoft’s antivirus products are recommended for both personally-owned and university-owned Windows machines. Please consider transitioning to the Microsoft anti-virus products at your earliest possible convenience.

This decision does not affect anti-virus for Macs. Mac users should continue to use Sophos Anti-Virus.

For more information about this change, please visit the Anti-Virus Transition FAQ.
