UC Davis Cyber-Safety Program: Spyware

If you are a computer user within an academic or administrative department on campus, you may have a Technology Support Coordinator (TSC) who is working to secure your system. Before taking any of the security steps listed below, please check with your TSC.

From the UC Davis Cyber-Safety Program Policy:

"The use of programs to identify and remove spyware programs is strongly advised to help to maintain the privacy of personal information and Internet use. The use of an anti-spyware program must be accompanied by installing program updates on regular basis to ensure the ability to detect and remove new spyware or adware programs. This standard applies to computers connected to the campus network using Windows operating systems."
