"Nelson said the problem is mainly confined to personal computers. The virus does not affect Macs.

"He said university staff first noticed the virus was in the system Thursday after Internet access and e-mail slowed. In response, the university shut down Internet access within the health sciences units at 10 a.m. on Friday.
