Virus Protection at Hamilton College
Software for students
Hamilton College does not license antivirus software for student use, but options for those lacking any protection are listed below. Each offers a free version of their product that provides basic protection. Hamilton does not explicitly endorse any specific anti-virus product(s) for personal/private use.
If you already have anti-virus software installed, simply be sure to keep it updated. Do not install multiple anti-virus programs on your computer, as this can cause conflicts and degrade your computer's performance. If you want to switch to different anti-virus software, be sure to fully uninstall the existing software first.
