What should I do, in case of virus detection/infection?

Readspeaker

In order to delete a virus from the computer scan all your hard disks with updated antivirus software and after deleting the virus, perform system updates so as not to encounter another virus problem.

In order to do that, install only one of the antivirus software (either McAfee or Symantec) from the security CD provided and compiled by the METU CC and update the antivirus software detection files. Remove the network connection cable an reboot your computer in safe mode and start a virus scan with the updated antivirus software. Delete all the viruses detected/found during scanning. If the operating sytem updates are not installed, after the deletion is completed, the virus can affect the computer again. That is why you should do the operating system updates included in the same CD.

Our users can obtain the necessary CD, at the dormitories from their dormitory managers, at the housings from the housing management, at the departments and administrative offices from the computer coordinators.
