A computer virus is a computer program capable of affecting computer performance by attaching to disks or other files and replicating itself repeatedly. This can happen without user knowledge or permission. A virus may or may not be visible but it is always best to properly clean up virus infections.

If a virus is found in your folder, check the log appended to the end of the "README.txt" message, and then check to see if the original files were successfully cleaned. You will then want to open the files to insure that they are ok. Note that if you open the files on a computer that is infected with a virus, your documents may be re-infected. It is highly recommended that building staff call the Help Desk at x4300 so an IT Field Technician can check any computer that may have used infected files. When you are sure that your files were successfully disinfected, you may delete the "Virus Infected Files" folder and its contents.
