Antivirus on your work computer

This is how you check to see if you have McAfee antivirus software on you work computer.

When your computer is connected to AU's network, McAfee will complete a scan of your computer at 12 o'clock on the third Wednesday every month. You may experience that you computer is slower than normal during the scan.

If you experience that your work computer is slower after you have replaced Sophos antivirus software with McAfee, AU IT can help. Please contact your local IT Support.
