All students using Windows should have up-to-date antivirus software. The College has licensed Symantec Endpoint Protection; it is not required, but it available to all students who wish to use it.
Symantec Endpoint Protection is compatible with Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Earlier versions of Windows are not supported. SEP is unnecessary on Windows 8, which has built-in antivirus features.
Before installing SEP or any other antivirus software, be sure to uninstall all other antivirus software. This includes free trials, expired subscriptions, etc. Running two antivirus programs simultaneously can be extremely detrimental to your computer’s performance and reliability.
