Antivirus  – Symantec Endpoint Protection

Symantec Endpoint Protection v12.1 is the WFU standard virus scanning software.  Symantec Endpoint Protection provides protection against network and Internet threats such as  viruses, malware and spyware.  A preconfigured weekly virus scan is scheduled on Tuesday at 11:00 a.m.  It is strongly encouraged that you let this automatic scan run the full scan.  If the Tuesday, 11:00a.m. scan is inconvenient, you can change the scheduled time by:

  • Double-click on yellow shield icon in Notification Area to open Symantec.
  • Click on Scan for Threats in left pane.
  • Right-click on WFU Default Weekly Full Scan and select Edit.
  • Click on Scan Schedule tab and change day and time as desired

Please remember that a weekly scan is imperative.  Now more than ever, we must be vigilant about protecting our data from viruses and spyware.
