More Info: Teams of computer technology specialists are cleaning North Idaho College’s 1,200 faculty and staff computers – one by one – to eradicate a pervasive and destructive virus that hit campus a week ago.

That’s when the college ordered faculty and staff computers shut down until they could be confirmed safe.
