Microsoft Forefront antivirus software has been selected for antivirus protection by the University of Tennessee for system wide use as part of the cost reduction effort. The ITD Help Desk is working with the campus to remove the McAfee Antivirus software and replace it with Forefront.
Faculty and staff that have McAfee intsalled on their home computers will need to remove it by June 30, 2010. Our McAfee subscription expires June 2010. We have instructions available for download for removing McAfee:
