Limit Your Risk-Computer Virus

Computer Viruses...how to limit your risk


We have been exceptionally fortunate on campus in this area and we would like to keep it that way. General guidelines that can reduce your risk are:


1. Be leery of any attachment, especially those ending with a '.vbs' extension.

2. Store your important files using the network file space. These network systems are backed up each day and thus can be restored in the case of a problem.

3. Keep your virus software on home computers up to date.

If you detect a virus on your computer, or any campus computer, e-mail the Albion College HelpDesk immediately at or call 629-0479.

Happy Computing!
