Get Virus Protection

Trinity distributes and supports Microsoft Endpoint on all college-owned Windows 7 computers. Windows 10 comes with built-in virus protection. Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows is available for free from Microsoft's web site for use on personally owned computers running earlier versions of Windows.

Avast! for Macs is available for free from their web site. When you install it, you'll have to make an exception for Trinity-specific web sites (otherwise you'll get a website unavailable error):

  1. Open Avast! and click on Preferences at the bottom left corner of the window.
  2. Under the Web Shield section, click Settings.
  3. Add a server with the + button.
  4. Type and change service to https and click Done.

Contact the Help Desk to request an install of virus protection software on a college-owned computer.

NOTE: Update your definitions file weekly (for Windows or Macintosh). If you believe you have been infected, follow these instructions to clean up your computer.
