Scanning for Viruses and Spyware

The Technology Department requests that all district employees run a Virus and Spyware scan this afternoon (or as soon as possible) on any computer that was used to check email today. Folow the steps below to make sure your computer is free of any virus or spyware!

Open System Center Endpoint Protection

Click the small arrow in your system tray (lower right corner of your taskbar), then click the shield icon.

Update Virus & Spyware Definitions

If the virus and spyware definitions are not up to date, then click on the Update tab, and click Update.

If your virus and spyware definitions are “Up to Date”, move to the next step to scan your computer.

Scan your Computer for Viruses or Spyware

Under Scan options, select FULL, and click Scan now.
The scanning process may take a long time, so be prepared to let it run in its entirety.

If malware is found after the scan, you will be required to restart your computer.
