Computer Health and Security Fair
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Zell B. Miller Learning Center
Second Floor Lobby
Also to be held Oct. 30. UGA students, faculty and staff can bring their personal laptops for free security checkups. Technical volunteers from Enterprise Information Technology Services and other campus IT departments will provide free virus and malware removal, and offer security consultations and check-ups to ensure that laptops are using the latest and most secure software and plug-ins.
At the event, technical volunteers will run a security check of personal computers that includes ensuring that firewalls are enabled and antivirus and operating systems are up to date. Technicians will also look for other problems, such as slow performance, Web browser pop-ups and unknown error messages.
University department-issued computers will not be checked at the fair.
