1 Overview

The University of Tokyo's Guidelines for Information Ethics and Computer Use requires that all computers have appropriate anti-virus measures. Specifically, you should use antivirus software for your personal computer, but not all viruses can prevent it, so you must always be careful about security when using your computer. Viruses may be infected via USB memory, so you should also take measures for the PC not connected to the network.

Guidelines for Information Ethics and Computer Use can be found on The University of Tokyo Information Ethics Guidelines web page below.

2 Anti-virus measures for Windows

For Windows 8 and later, the OS includes antivirus function. The antivirus function is enabled by default, so please use your computer without disabling it.

The Information Technology Center distributes antivirus software with 1,000 yen per year per computer.

When you use the devices where it is difficult to install antivirus software, you should prevent actions that may cause problems.
