Antivirus for your Personal Computer


It is important to have a good working antivirus program on your computer, whether it be Windows, Mac or Linux. An antivirus will provide valuable protection for your computer by detecting and removing malware. It can also block malicious webpages to help prevent malware from being downloaded.

It is also a requirement of the University of Otago that all computers connecting to the network have a working, updated antivirus. (View the University of Otago Anti-virus policy.)
