Using antivirus software
When you use the computer for e-mail or Internet access, you expose it to computer viruses that can
disable the operating system, programs, or utilities or cause them to function abnormally.
Antivirus software can detect most viruses, destroy them, and in most cases, repair damage they have
caused. To provide ongoing protection against newly discovered viruses, antivirus software must be
kept up to date.
Norton Internet Security, an antivirus program, is preinstalled on the computer.
Your version of Norton Internet Security includes 60 days of free updates. It is strongly
recommended that you protect the computer against new viruses beyond 60 days by purchasing
extended update service. Instructions for using and updating Norton Internet Security software and
for purchasing extended update service are provided within the program.
To access Norton Internet Security, or to get more information about it, select Start > All
Programs > Norton Internet Security.
NOTE: HP recommends that you always update the antivirus software to help protect your computer.
