Q: What is the best way to protect myself from spyware?

A:

Ensure that your PC/Laptop has an up to date antivirus program installed. You can ask OSCit personnel to ensure your office PC is compliant with MUN antivirus standards. If your computer is not owned by MUN, we can advise you with regard to which antivirus program is best suited for your PC. To protect against spyware, your computer should be scanned occasionally using an anti-spyware utility. The best freely downloadable utility is called "Spybot" and can be downloaded from the follwing address:
