Software - Where and How to Get It

Anti-virus software:     We have had to close our ANR software download site due to legal and licensing issues but there is an alternative which is to download the antivirus program from UCD. However, this is only for Windows 7 or earlier OS's. Windows 8 comes with Defender and has antivirus capabilities.

For Windows 7 computers, to download System Center Endpoint Protection (formerly known as Forefront), go to Click the "MYUCDAVIS for Faculty/Staff" link. Authenticate using your loginID and kerberos passphrase. Click the "UCD Resources" tab in the upper left and then click "Software." Click "Antivirus" on the left side and then click "Anti-Virus for University Owned/Work Only: System Center Endpoint Protection." Read the agreement and then click the "download" link in the lower right corner. Once downloaded, run the installer to install it on your work computer.
