Repair your XP system yourself

Thank you for visiting our Self Clean page. Here you will find instructions for cleaning your Windows XP system. We strongly encourage you to follow the links below for step by step instructions on securing and cleaning your system prior to your arrival on campus. You can also use this site for general routine maintenance of your system. Spyware, adware and viruses can seriously degrade the performance of your computer and can compromise your sensitive data, leading to identity theft. In addition, systems that have a virus will be automatically blocked from the network until they are cleaned. Following these instructions on a regular basis will keep your system running well and will minimize the risk of your computer being infected.
