Using Next Generation AntivirusTo top
Once installed, the Next Generation Antivirus will automatically run on your computer and catch malicious files in their tracks. The system will automatically remove dangerous files, so there is nothing else you need to do. The system will continuously run scans of your computer.
- If you are alerted that a file you are trying to open may be a malicious/dangerous file: occasionally the system will not know if a file is safe or not. Best practice is to check with your Authorised IT Contact to ensure the file is safe before opening.
- If you are alerted a file may be malicious or dangerous that you have not tried to open: this may be a malicious attack and you should stop the file from opening and delete.
