Malware Detection and Removal

Malware, short for malicious software, is software used to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems. It can appear in the form of code, scripts, active content, and other software. Malware is a general term used to refer to a variety of forms of hostile or intrusive software.

Antivirus and security software

Lehigh strongly recommends that all users protect their computer by installing a recommended Antivirus program.

Faculty/Staff Lehigh-Owned Computers

The Lehigh VPN (Virtual Private Network)

A VPN is a network system that makes a secure connection between a client computer at a remote location (such as a personal machne at home or off-campus) and a protected, private network (such as Lehigh's campus network) over an otherwise insecure public network (such as the Internet). Data passed over the public network is encapsulated and encrypted so that it can't be intercepted or tampered with.

Lehigh Computing Accounts

The primary method for managing access to University computer resources is the Lehigh Computing Account. This account provides access to numerous secure resources based on each user's unique relationship to the University, and must be opened before it can be used.

Data Standards

The Banner System is Lehigh University’s integrated database.

Reporting and Data Requests

Banner Reporting Access

Some employees also need access to run reports from Banner by linking to Banner tables and/or views. Similar to user classes, Banner reporting roles include the tables needed for reporting from a functional area. The same procedure as above is followed to request reporting access (tables or reporting roles) for an individual.

Administrative Systems

A number of administrative systems are used to support the work of the University. Some of these systems include: Banner, Avow, Axiom, DARS, Argos, Cognos, Nolij, R25, and QAS.

Media Classrooms Sites and Hours

Library & Technology Services provides technology-enabled classrooms and public computing sites. See the Classroom Technology and Public Computers site for information on rooms.

Additionally, see the Digital Media Studio site for information on the Digital Media Studio location.


A variety of software is licensed by the university for use by faculty, students, and staff. The installation utility is role-based and location-aware so that users can see only the titles they are eligible to download and install based on their role at the University, as well as the location where they want to run it. This could be on-campus, off-campus or even a specific building on campus.
