The college uses Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition to protect campus computers from malware. It is strongly recommended that all students use anti-virus software to protect their computer as well.
Microsoft provides a free and very good anti-virus software program called Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows based computers.
Click on the icon below to go the Microsoft site to download the program.
It is important to keep the virus definitions up to date in order for the program to be effective. A "virus definition" is a "fingerprint" that antivirus software uses to detect viruses.
Make sure you uninstall any existing anti-virus program before installing Microsoft Security Essentials.
If you encounter any errors during this installation, please contact the IT Help Desk.
