Virus and Spyware Scanning:
ICT Help Desk provides virus and spyware scanning for NMSU students.
To make sure there is a technician available to check in your computer, call us at (575) 646-1840.
Computer Check-in Hours: 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM Monday through Wednesday

Computer maintenance is a first come, first serve service. Unfortunately, our technicians can only check in one computer at a time; we may have to ask you to bring your computer at a later time or different day.
Additionally, we do not accept computers the first two weeks of the semester or the last week of the semester.
All students at NMSU have access to free Sophos Anti-Virus software.
