It is critical to update your
Windows operating system and Internet Explorer software
Just as it is important to update the
virus definitions of your antivirus software, it is
equally important to update the Windows operating system
and Internet Explorer software on your computer. Just
like virus definitions, Windows and Internet Explorer
should be updated weekly. Fortunately, Microsoft makes
this process fast and easy with their “Windows Update”
Open your Internet Explorer web browser
and click on Tools ->Windows
On the Windows Update welcome screen,
click the Scan for Updates link.
When your computer has finished scanning
for updates, it will group the updates into three categories
visible on the left side of the screen. The categories
are Critical Updates and Service Packs, Windows XP (or
2000 or 98), and Driver Updates. Click on the link for
Critical Updates and Service Packs.
You should always install any updates Microsoft releases
as “critical.” Never click on
the Driver Updates link!
You will now see a list of all the critical
updates needed by your computer. Click on the Review
and Install Updates link on the right side
of the page.
Your screen will remain mostly unchanged
with the list of recommended updates remaining. Click
on the Install Now button.
The update files will be downloaded from
Microsoft and Installed on your computer. Please note
that many updates require that your computer be rebooted
in order for them to take affect. In certain instances,
specific updates may need to be installed by themselves.
In these cases, multiple restarts may be required. Always
click the OK button if asked Do
want to restart now? You want to see (0) in
the list of critical updates recommended for your computer.
Once your computer has rebooted, the updates will be
in place and your computer will be protected with the
latest fixes for the Windows operating system and Internet

word about Recent Viruses, Worms and Trojans.
McAfee is our Virus scanning application
that is used throughout Chicago-Kent. According to
McAfee's web site there are more then 62,000 virus
threats that exist and new ones are found everyday.
Viruses and backdoor Trojans can cause major disruptions
and financial loss. The Melissa, I love You, Goner,
Code Red and many others have impacted many organizations
to the point that even Microsoft had to turn off their
e-mail systems until the virus could be contained.
The newer forms of viruses (Backdoor Trojans) are
even more devastating by actually giving someone else
complete control of your computer and access to all
the information stored on them.
There are things that you can do to
protect your computer. You can protect yourself by
running a full virus scan of all the files on your
computer periodically. Ensuring that you have the
latest updates from the vendor. Avoid programs from
unknown sources (Internet and Email). Never open or
double-click on an attachment that is from an unknown
The Center for Law and Computers
posts Virus Updates to your computer desktop as
they are released from the vendor or you can access
them directly from McAfeeÆs web site when connected
to the internet through the virus application.
An ounce of protection will go a long way in ensuring
that your documents and computer are virus free.

A Word About Microsoft Operating
Beginning with Windows ME in calendar
year 2000, Microsoft began implementing a strategy
of tailoring certain versions of their Windows
operating systems specifically toward consumer
markets. Windows ME and certain future versions
of the Windows operating system include multimedia
and "ease of use" features that are
designed to make the use of a Windows based
computer a more engaging experience in the home.
While this may sound enticing,
it is important to realize that the "consumer"
versions of Windows are not designed to exist
in a corporate network environment like that
at Chicago-Kent. In fact, the "consumer"
version of Microsoft's latest operating system,
Windows XP Home Edition, does not include any
capability to connect to corporate networks.
So where does this leave you?
At the time of these specifications writing,
the Center for Law and Computers recommends
Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional
(Professional being the KEY word here) as the
best all-around operating systems for new notebook
computer purchases. If neither is available,
then Windows 98 would be the next best choice
followed by Windows ME as a last option. For
students who already own a notebook, any edition
of Windows 98 along with Windows 2000 Professional
and XP Professional can be configured to connect
to the Chicago-Kent network. Existing Windows
ME notebooks can be configured to connect to
the network through some additional work by
computer support staff. Desktop users are encouraged
to remain with the operating system that is
presently on their PC.
word about MS Windows XP
On October 25, 2001, Microsoft released
the newest version of their Windows operating system called
Windows XP. This new operating system comes in two distinct
editions: Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional.
Please be aware that while Windows XP Home Edition can
connect to the Internet, it can not in any way be made
to connect to corporate networks such as the Chicago-Kent
LAN. A computer running the Home Edition of Windows XP
will not be able to access network printers, network drives
such as H: home directories, and e-mail via Microsoft
It is for these reasons that the Center
for Law and Computers recommends that anyone purchasing
a new machine positively confirm the operating system
with their vendor. Computers that are available only with
Windows XP pre-installed should only be purchased if it
is Windows XP Professional, NOT Windows XP Home Edition.
Windows 98 and Windows 2000 Professional
continue to be fully compatible with the Chicago-Kent
As always, please feel free to contact the
CLC Help Desk if you have any questions or concerns.
and Network Accounts:
A Chicago-Kent email account is setup for
you. Your username will be your first initial and last
name, no punctuation or spaces (i.e. Jane Student = jstudent)
and your initial password will be the last six digits
of your Social Security Number, no punctuation or spaces
unnecessary files on Network
The Center for Law and Computers provides
access to the Network for Chicago-Kent students, faculty,
and staff in support of the educational mission of the
university. In recent months we have noticed an increase
in the amount of personal storage space being consumed
on our network. As we continue to maintain and scan the
network drives we are noticing numerous occurrences of
non-educational types of materials (i.e., MP3, .wav, .mov,
.avi). We understand that there are occasions when storing
these types of files on the network for educational use
As you may well be aware, the recent court
decisions potentially makes us liable if members of our
community engage in infringing activity. As a reminder
to all students, a portion of the IIT Computer Use Policy
states, "Network users must abide by the terms of
all software licensing agreements and copyright laws,
and may not make copies of or make available on the network
copyrighted material, unless permitted by a license. Network
users must not perform acts which are deliberately wasteful
of computing resources or which unfairly monopolize resources
to the exclusion of others..." The complete Computer
User Policy can be found at:
When you save and store large music, image,
video, or other types of non-educational related material
on the network it increases the time it takes for system
backups and virus scanning; the large downloads also consume
unnecessary bandwidth. Please
be considerate of your colleagues and remove or transfer
to your laptop ALL files in violation. If files
are not removed, the Center for Law and Computers is authorized
by the administration to permanently remove them for you.
We ask that you purge all unnecessary messages
and files as often as possible from your network and email
accounts to help us preserve space on the C-K server.
As a reminder, in Outlook mail, you must delete messages
from your "Deleted Messages" folder for them
to be permanently removed from the mail server. It is
also a good maintenance procedure to delete any unneeded
messages in the "Sent" folder.
To select a new password:
from your Internet browser, (i.e. Internet Explorer)
Select the option CHANGE
When prompted, enter your username, password
and desired new password when successfully completed,
you will receive the message PASSWORD SUCCESSFULLY
Your new password takes effect immediately
and will give you access to your email account and network
Password protection is one of the most important
principles of network and e-mail security. Chicago-Kent
College of Law provides access to network and electronic
mail resources to its students, faculty, and staff, in
support of the University's mission of teaching, research,
and public service. Passwords are assigned for access
to both of these resources to authenticate a user's identity,
to protect network users, and to provide security.
New passwords will be provided, and existing
passwords will be reset, only when the identity of the
requester can be clearly established.
- Under no circumstances will new or existing passwords
be revealed by telephone.

are Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 8000N Printers. There is
one printer in each lab 700, 760 and 900 that is set up
as the default printer when you sign on in that lab.
Individual Student Printing Accounts:
Each student receives 400 pages of printing
per semester. Any printing past 400 pages will be charged
to your student printing account at .05 per page. You
must settle your student account with the Bursar's
Office before receiving your 400 page allotment for
the following semester. Students with outstanding balances
will have their Kentnet accounts deactivated until the
balance is paid. Graduating students with a delinquent
printing balance will not receive their diplomas
until the accounts are paid in full.
If you print work for a faculty member,
you must print out a detailed balance and have the faculty
member sign for their pages. Present the signed balance
sheet to the Help Desk in the Center for Law and Computers

It Is Critical to Update Your Virus
Detection Software Regularly:
As always, it is a good idea to update the
virus protection software on your personal computer periodically
to catch any new viruses lurking out there in cyber world
Since we have a volume license to McAfee Virus Scan,
each student, faculty and staff should have a copy of
this software on his/her computer. (It is free to C-K
students so...No excuse not to have it!)
The Center for Law and Computers takes a
proactive stance in trying to eradicate viruses by cleaning
them as they come through our servers, we cannot protect
each individual PC. We are asking that you also be proactive
to ensure that your PC does not become infected.
Because there are new virus outbreaks DAILY,
we want to stress the importance of having the latest
virus protection software and updated virus definition
(.DAT) files. We'd also like to remind you that regular
virus scans of all drives (weekly, if possible) are necessary
in order to detect and clean any viruses so they are not
sent to friends and/or colleagues.
Chicago-Kent is licensed for and supports
McAfee Virus Scan from Network Associates. According to
information on their web site, there are over 50,000+
viruses out there and the potential for damage is continuous.
We here at the Center for Law and Computers want to make
sure you have the best possible protection for your PC.
Please follow the manual instructions below to install
the latest virus definition updates (.DAT files) for your
Check to see that you have a recent version of the virus
scanning software on your computer.
You can do this by clicking on the small
blue and red "VShield" icon in the lower right
corner of your screen with the right mouse button. When
you do, a small menu will pop up. Select the "About"
choice in this menu by clicking on it once with the left
After clicking "About" you will get a box
that displays several numbers. There are two important
numbers that you should be concerned with. The first
number is in boldface and located next to the phrase
"McAfee Virus Scan" toward the top of the
box's gray area. This number tells you what version
of the Virus Scan product or "engine" you
are running. You should be running some version of
4.x. Any version of 3.x is too old and should be updated
to a later version, please call the Help Desk to schedule
an update. The second number you should be concerned
with in the "About" box is the number next
to the phrase "Virus definitions." The last
four digits of this number tell you the version of
the ".DAT" you are running. As an example,
the picture below is from a PC that is running version
4.5.1 of the Virus Scan product (engine) and version
4250 of the virus definitions (.DAT files).
SECOND: Install the
latest virus definition updates on your computer.
These procedures may
force a reboot of your computer. In order to avoid loss
of data, close all programs except Outlook before completing
any of the following steps.

- Make sure "Include subfolders" box is
checked and click the radio button next to "All
- Click on "Action" tab.
- Click on down arrow and select "Clean infected
- Click "Scan now."
This will begin the scanning process. It
will check all the files on the drive you designated.
It may take a few minutes to several hours depending on
the speed of your computer and the number of files you
