Keep Your Computer Protected with New Antivirus Software
The campus is moving to new antivirus solutions, meaning customers of CA eTrust Antivirus (also known as CUantivirus) will need to move to one of the new solutions before the software license expires June 17. Antivirus software is one of the most important tools for safeguarding your computer and personal data from viruses and worms. After June 16, CUantivirus will not provide this protection. ITS recommends that you uninstall CUantivirus and install one of the recommended products available online. This site also includes detailed instructions for uninstalling CUantivirus, installing a new antivirus solution, a list of resources, and FAQs. For assistance contact the IT Service Center at 303-735-4357 (or 5-HELP from an on-campus phone). Phone help is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

All dependents, including spouses, common law spouses or same gender domestic partners (SGDP), must be verified to continue their coverage starting July 1, 2010. If you completed the dependent verification audit via Secova, you will not have to re-verify. If you are adding new dependents for coverage effective July 1, 2010, you must verify their eligibility with PBS during the open enrollment period and have required documents submitted by May 21, 2010 at 5 p.m. MDT.
