Endpoint Anti-virus for Windows

​Microsoft Endpoint virus protection software is licensed for all college-owned computers. We encourage all students, faculty and staff to install Microsoft's free virus protection software, Microsoft Security Essentials, on their personally owned computers, and keep it updated.

Faculty and staff should already have Endpoint installed on their office computers. If you need assistance with your version on your office computer, please contact the Help Desk.

The Endpoint icon is displayed in your System Tray (lower right side of your screen) and will change in color and appearance depending upon the status of the software. Here are some examples:

  • After scans, you should see a green Endpoint icon
  • If the icon is orange,then Endpoint needs some attention. Click on the Endpoint icon, and select Open and follow the instructions to correct the issue.

To manually scan your system at any time, double click on the Endpoint icon, click Open and then click the Scan Now button. If you believe your computer has an issue or a threat you cannot resolve, please contact the Help Desk.
