  • Make sure that your computer has no viruses or spyware (see our Downloads page for links to free removal programs).
  • Make sure that your computer has all available Windows updates.
  • Uninstall your current anti-virus software and install Microsoft Security Essentials. For maximum security, download Security Essentials first, then disconnect your computer from the Internet while you uninstall your current anti-virus software and install Security Essentials.
  • You may need to change your computer's network/Internet settings, but don't do this until just before you come to campus (once you do, your current Internet connection may not work).
  • Review the Student Computer Networking Terms and Conditions, Computing and Networking Appropriate Use Policy, and File Sharing guidelines. You must adhere to all of these policies, or you will be subject to losing your network connection privileges.
