NEW VIRUS DETECTION SOFTWARE - Version 4.0.20
As always, it is a good idea to update the virus protection
software on your personal computer periodically to catch any
new viruses that are out there. Since we have a site license
to McAfee Virus scan, all students can install copies of this
software onto their computers for free. (Thus, no excuse not
to do it!)
To install the latest version, go to Room 775 and borrow the
MCAFEE version 4.0.20 software to install on your machine.
There are a limited number of CD's available, thus there is a
24 hour loan period. After you install the latest version,
you need to scan your machine for viruses. This is very
important because the program does not automatically do this.
To scan your machine, go to Start - Programs - Mcafee Virus Scan.
The default is automatically set to scan Program files only,
so make sure you select ALL Files, then click on scan now. The
scan will take about 10 minutes, depending on how many files

TAKING YOUR EXAM ON
We're using a special examination software called XMN8R
which all students will be using when they take their exams on
computer instead of Word97 or WordPerfect 8.0. Although this
software operates just like a word processor, you may want to
familiarize yourself with some of the small differences between
XMN8R and what you're used to. We've designed a tutorial
to walk you through the program's features and to answer the
most commonly asked questions. There is a practice mode in the
XMN8R program which you can run at the same time you run our
on-line tutorial, so make sure to do this at a lab computer.
Chicago-Kent's Year 2000 Web Site
We have made a web
site available that containes Year 2000 Software Compliant
Product Information and information about the problem itself.

Answers to some of the most commonly
asked questions of the CLC:
- What is the website address to check my email outside of
- What is the website address to get my grades?
- What do I do if I can't find my pin number, or if my pin
number is not working?
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

- To check student balance within the LAW SCHOOL on Windows
95/98 computers: i.e. email stations, and lab computers:
From the Kentnet Menu select STUDENT SERVICES
Then select CENTER FOR LAW AND COMPUTERS
Then select STUDENT PRINTING and the "current semester".
This will pull up your individual account.
- How can I get a credit on my account for printing problems?
- If you experienced a problem printing due to a network, computer
or printer error, please send an email to HELPDESK
and include the date, time, lab, number of pages, and cause of
problem. (User error does not constitute reason for
credit.) Please keep th epages in question (especially
if it was due to low toner); you may be asked to present
them as proof.
- Some of the printing is for a Professor, for Moot Court Competition,
for a student organization, etc. Can I get a credit to my account
for these pages?
- Yes. This is the procedure to follow:
1) print a copy of your most current printing account, (See above
question: How can I check my printing balance?)
2) circle or hi-light and total the # of pages of the jobs that
pertain to work performed for the organization, professor, moot
court competition, etc.
3) obtain advisor, professor, etc. signature and account # to
4) bring the signed printout to Michael Bentkover in Room 709.
Those pages will be deducted from your account.
The remaining balance is the responsibility of the student
who has two weeks into the following semester to pay off the
balance. Each student with a balance will receive an email stating
a specified date and time that payment in full must be received.
If payment is not received by the specified date, network rights
will be terminated until full payment is received.
FYI: Network Maintenance
Regular general maintenance of the network is necessary to
ensure greater performance, both in terms of speed and the prevention
of any serious problems. To achieve these goals, the Center for
Law and Computers will periodically take down the network to
perform this maintenance. We've scheduled the maintenance on
a monthly basis, for only 1.5 hours on days and at times to inconvenience
the least amount of users.
Here are the dates that we will be taking the network down.
On these days, the network will not be available between 5:30am
