Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware

Students are welcome to use the free university antivirus, Symantec Endpoint Protection. Note that this is not the same as Norton Antivirus which has known issues with Exam4. Symantec Endpoint Protection may falsely accuse exam4 of being viral and ask for confirmation that you wish to run exam4, this is a false positive due to the nature of security implemented in exam4 so simply allow it.

Students do not have permission to log into resident classroom computers without written authorization from the Dean's office.
