The fair will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. October 21 & 22 in the second floor rotunda of the MLC and is open to all staff, faculty and students for their personal computers. Technical volunteers will provide security checks and free virus and malware removal for PC and Mac laptops. They will also install the latest software and security updates, ensure that firewalls are enabled and update antivirus and operating systems. Volunteers will also examine other software problems, such as slow performance and unknown error messages.
This fall, the fair will have a separate line for faculty and staff seeking help for their personal computers, to move them through the check-up process faster.
