ESET nod32 – Lincoln’s anti-virus program
The anti-virus software on all Lincoln-owned workstations, laptops and notebooks is ESET nod32. It is a popular product in NZ academic institutions and is very widely deployed at a number of tertiary institutions including the University of Auckland, AUT and CPIT.
You will see the ESET nod32 icon in the task bar (bottom right had corner of your screen).
If ESET nod32 ever tells you that you have a virus on your Lincoln-owned computer, please call the IT Service Desk on 30100.
Unfortunately there is no “free use at home” option for staff and students. There are a number of good free anti-virus solutions out there and we continue to recommend Microsoft Security Essentials and the free version of AVG for Windows users. Alternatively, you can purchase a copy of ESET nod32 anti-virus, or ESET SmartSecurity (includes anti-spam & firewall) for your personal use. If you do purchase a ESET license please note support is provided by ESET, not Lincoln University.
