Software You own your computer, and you are responsible for maintaining it for school usage. You can install other software not intended for school use, but the IT Department will remove any software or re-image your hard drive if necessary. The IT Dept. is not responsible for saving ANY of your files or re- installing any non-standard software. Re-imaging puts your tablet hard drive back to the state it was when you took it out of the box. It erases all content on your hard drive and restores all of the programs and settings needed at Mercy. Usually re-imaging is necessary when a laptop has a virus. File sharing software (Limewire, Frostwire, etc.) and other freeware are the main causes of spyware/adware/malware/viruses. What you can and cant load on your Mercy Tablet
