If You Have A Windows PC
If you have an antivirus client that came pre-installed with your computer, you do not have to install DU's antivirus software. However, if your current client is a trial-only version and you have not purchased the full version, you will have to upgrade to the full version upon expiration or install antivirus.
Please follow these steps to ensure your machine is ready for connecting to the University of Denver's network:
- Install and configure Antivirus Software (CrowdStrike Antivirus is provided by the University for free! No need to purchase another anti-virus client)
- Enable Automatic Updates (Windows 7, 8.1, or 10)
If You Have A Mac
- Make sure that your software is up-to-date
- Install and configure Antivirus Software (CrowdStrike Antivirus)
If you have questions or concerns, call 303-871-4700, visit the IT Help Center (AAC 270) or request help online.
