Antivirus Instructions

We highly recommend that you have an active/updated antivirus program installed to use the SUNY Oneonta network. Viruses can cause major damage to your device and to the campus network. Keep your AV software up to date, enable on-access scanning and run full system scans periodically. You may use an Anti-Virus of your choice, or download one of the free solutions we recommend:

Windows 8 and Windows 10 users can activate Microsoft Windows Defender. View instructions on how to activate Windows Defender in Windows 8 or 10, or contact the IT Service Desk.

Mac OS users can download and install Avast Mac Security for free from Avast.
