No, I’m not just talking about AVG (linked to FileForum because they have a full offline installer versus Download.com’s annoying “web stub”). Mines actually has a site license for Symantec’s corporate antivirus application, which students can download and install on their own computers after entering their Mines multipass. As a side note, MathCAD can also be downloaded via the Mines download center.

If it did, Mines’s offering the product would be a non-event and I’d simply recommend that everyone grab a copy of AVG for their computer(s). But this is actually better.
