Norton AntiVirus Now Available For Free Download to UC Davis Students

In its continuing efforts to provide a more secure computing environment, UC Davis has made the latest edition of Norton AntiVirus software available for free download to students. An email memo from Vice Chancellor Judy Sakaki and Vice Provost John Bruno went out to all UCD students on March 31, 2004, announcing the availability of the software, and including instructions on how to obtain and configure the software. The full memo can be accessed here: Both the PC and Mac versions of Norton AntiVirus can be downloaded from the MyUCDavis Web portal. Norton AntiVirus is also available to faculty and staff at a significant discount via MyUCDavis. The versions of Norton Antivirus available for students on the MyUCDavis Web portal come with a subscription to the Live Update service that lasts through September 30, 2004. The campus is in negotiations with the software vendor, and hopes to offer this service again for the 2004-2005 academic year. A CD version of Norton AntiVirus is available as part of the UC Davis Internet Tools CD, which can be purchased at the UC Davis Bookstore Computer Shop for $4.50 plus tax.
