There has been a known problem with MinUWet, for several months now,
where it has problems detecting A/V software on 64-bit Windows. The
problem results in the these computers failing MinUWet even though they
meet the security requirements.
Given the large number of users that have arrived on campus with 64-bit
Windows systems, MinUWet is now in advisory mode (effective approx.
16:05 today). This means that users will still be directed to run
MinUWet, but they will be granted 'premium access' regardless of the result.
We will advise further when a fix has been developed and tested.
