Gustavus AntiVirus Checking Tool

(Redirected from Gustavus Anti-Virus Checker)

Gustavus Network Registration requires that machines be running a detectable and current antivirus application. If you have an antivirus application that you would like to use (other than Symantec EndPoint Protection), please use the Gustavus Antivirus Checking Tool to verify your software and allow you to register your machine.

Please note: Beginning in the 2014-2015 academic year, Gustavus Technology Services will no longer offer Symantec Endpoint Protection for installation on personally-owned computers. Campus network users (Windows) will still be required to have a functional antivirus program installed on their computer. These programs include Norton, Kaspersky, etc. On Windows 8 machines, the standard Windows Defender program is recommended.
