The University’s license for the Kaspersky Anti-Virus software expires on 30th April 2014. If you are running a copy of Kaspersky on a self-managed machine using the University License, you must remove it manually and replace it. The replacement anti-virus software is System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP) which is currently licensed for use on University-owned computers ONLY.
The University are recommending that you use Microsoft Security Essentials on non-University owned machines.
Full details on removal of Kaspersky and installation of either of the 2 options above can be found at:
