How to protect your computer
Symantec Endpoint Protection Software
Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) is licensed by Symantec Corporation to Fredonia. A provision of that license agreement
allows registered students to use a copy of the software on their personal computers.
Former students are not eligible to use the software.
All state-owned computers in faculty/staff offices and labs have virus protection
installed as a part of the machine prep. Some older computers may need updated software.
Please contact the ITS Service Center with any problems. Faculty and Staff are encouraged to purchase and install antivirus
software on their home computers.
Platforms: Windows XP Home/XP Pro/VISTA/Windows 7/Windows 8, Mac OSX 10.7-10.9
Mac computers will continue to be protected by the Symantec Antivirus Corporate product

read and agree to the following:

- My right to download, install, and utilize this software exits only so long as I am
classified as a registered student by the Office of the Registrar at Fredonia.
- I am personally responsible for insuring that SEP is uninstalled and removed from
my computer when I am no longer classified as a registered student at Fredonia.
- I install the Fredonia provided SEP at my own risk and I acknowledge that Fredonia
is in no way responsible or liable for any damage that the installation or removal
of the aforementioned software may incur on my personal computer.
You must uninstall other Anti-Virus programs before you install Symantec Endpoint
Protection. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Symantec Anti-Virus, you must first
uninstall it. Mac Users: If for any reason this does not work, go to Symantec's Website
to download the RemoveSymantecMacFiles removal utility.

Policy & Support
Fredonia is providing SEP to students as a courtesy since every computer connected
to the campus network is required to run current anti-virus protection software. "Managed"
anti-virus protection is in place on campus-owned computers.
ResNet and Non-ResNet student anti-virus protection is un-managed. (Fredonia's Computer
and Network Usage Policy A. Academic/Administrative and Residential (ResNet) Network,
Anti-virus Protection V. Services, Section 1)
The ResNet Office provides limited hardware and software support for all students
that live in the residence halls. This includes support for the installation and problem
resolution of the university provided SEP as well as other anti-virus software applications.
