Antivirus Software

For personal computers, CIT recommends downloading Microsoft Security Essentials for antivirus software. This is a FREE virus protection package.

Even if you already have antivirus software installed, CIT highly recommends that all students take advantage of this resource. While other packages require you to continually purchase "subscription renewals" in order to receive updates, you'll receive free updates as long as Security Essentials is installed.

Incoming students should download and install this software before arriving on campus.

If you have Windows 8 or newer, Security Essentials is built-in, and called Windows Defender. Be sure you have uninstalled any other anti-virus free trials that come with the computer, and check that Windows Defender is running.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us or stop by!
