Computer viruses, malware, worms, spyware, and the like have shown a significant impact in the digital world today. It has shown its power to destroy computer systems and hardware and most of the time used for hacking, spying, and other cyber crimes. With this scenarios, it empirical to unravel the story behind computer network laboratories using Kermack-McKendrick model through simulation of a nonlinear network using NetLogo v.6.0 in an actual setting happened in a Philippine teacher education institution. Results revealed the impact of the computer viruses and the difference between a free antivirus and a licensed software antivirus in the computer network laboratories. Finally, with this initiatives, the university decided to purchase a licensed software antivirus as it is deemed necessary to protect the end-user from the computer viruses and the equipment itself for long term use, savings, and helping the environment as a whole.
