UW Computer Vet Tames Wild Laptops

Who you gonna call when your laptop is plagued by worms and viruses?

Computer Vet!

The UW's Computer Vet is

a free, help-desk service offered to UW students, faculty and staff to assist with computing problems including operating system updates, anti-virus installation and update, and infected computers blocked from UW network access.

Like the Law School Computing Services staff, the Computer Vets will disinfect and immunize your laptop and restore your remote access to the many great databases subscribed to by the Library.

The Computer Vet operates at two locations: Mary Gates Hall and the Odegaard Undergraduate Library. For night owls, the Odegaard location has vet techs on duty Monday through Thursday until 2am! Good to know since Law School Computing and the Computer Vet at Mary Gates provide service during standard hours, 9am-5pm.

Note: UWLS faculty and staff must use Law School Computing Services for any and all technical support related to a Law School-issued computer.
