Before long, the incident response team at my company opened up a telephone bridge so I, my experts and my experts' experts -- including security pros from Microsoft -- could all discuss what was happening and brainstorm about the potential causes.The incident response team also began troubleshooting and realized the only affected computers were Windows XP computers with Service Pack 2 installed, and that we had just received a DAT file from our antivirus vendor shortly before the computers froze.
To prevent this, do not use periods when naming your files, and also remind people that send you attachments not to use periods.I do not want all users to have Admin rights, but I do want to keep my virus files up to date!Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you solve it? All Windows computers on the Boston College network are required to have Mc Afee Virus Scan anti-virus software installed on their computer. Virus Scan is pre-configured to automatically update your anti-virus protection every day (except Saturday) from both on & off campus.Sometimes Auto Update does not run automatically, such as when your computer is turned off.
Simplified alerts and scan results make it easier than ever to protect your PC.
