Free Virus Protection for Your Computer

The University's Office of Information Technology (OIT) establishes minimum requirements for use of various technology resources, and these standards must be followed by those within the University unless exceptions are approved by OIT. OIT's anti-virus software standard states that desktop and personal computers, including laptop computers, connected to the University network are required to maintain and use an up-to-date version of anti-virus software (or virus filtering software for Unix) configured according to relevant standards.

Visit the OIT Anti-Virus Standard page for complete information.

It's part of the larger University Policy on Acceptable Use of Information Technology.

In order to facilitate compliance with the OIT Anti-Virus Standard, the University of Minnesota has an agreement with Symantec Corp. to provide its Norton AntiVirus (NAV) software to the University of Minnesota community. This software is available AT NO COST to members of the University community.

This software may be used as follows:

  • On any computer paid for with University of Minnesota funds and owned by the U of MN.
  • On one computer owned by any University of Minnesota staff or faculty member for personal use.
  • On one computer owned by any University of Minnesota student for personal use.

Please visit the ITSS Virus and Security Information web page for information about how to download this product.
