Security Essentials

The UTHSC ITS department recommends Microsoft Security Essentials. This software is free of charge on personally owned equipment, and works very well per our tests. Please visit the Microsoft Security Essentials download and support page to acquire this software.

Mac OS Computers

If you're a OS X Macintosh user, you can use ClamXAV, a free downloadable antivirus Mac client. There is a version for OS 10.5 and higher and a different version that works with OS 10.4 (Tiger) or earlier.

Other Operating Systems

Anti-virus software solutions for other operating systems are not available through the UT Health Science Center.
