Hampshire uses ESET anti-virus software for our Windows computers, and we recommend the free version of Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) for student and personal machines.
PC users can install the free version of Microsoft Security Essentials from Microsoft's website.
If Mac users would like antivirus software, we recommend ClamAV. ClamAV is no longer free, but is still a good product, now offering a free 30-day trial.
We have seen malware infections on Macs and Windows computers. We recommend using free Malwarebytes (MBAM). Malwarebytes is an application that scans, finds, and removes malware. Choose Mac or PC at the bottom of the linked page.
In addition to having active and up-to-date anti-virus software installed on your computer and running spyware detection software, there are other habits you can develop to minimize the risk of getting infected. Think of it as defensive driving.
Please follow the instructions below to uninstall AVG and install ESET on your Hampshire-owned, Windows computer only.
That's it. Your computer is now protected by ESET antivirus.
