Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition

Symantec Antivirus (formerly Norton) is considered required software for computing at Yale.

When installing the software in Windows, choose 'Unmanaged' (the default option) when selecting an installation scenario. Also activate LiveUpdate to get virus updates.
