For Personal/Home/Not-State-Owned Equipment Use, ESET software and licenses for CSUSB faculty, staff, and students can be acquired for FREE at the CSUSB Technology Support Center site: ESET for Not-State-Owned Devices
The software below is only licensed for CSU San Bernardino owned computers (State and UEC).
There are two components for every install of ESET - the Agent and the Antivirus software. Be sure to get both!
After installing, it may take a few minutes for the software to activate. Don't panic! (machine must be on-campus or connected with VPN to activate)
The old Sophos antivirus license has expired.
For those machines on SCCM, ESET is already available as a deployable package.
Before installing ESET, manually uninstall Sophos for Windows (or any other antivirus software), then install both the Agent and the Antivirus software:
After installing, check your list of installed programs in the Windows Control Panel to verify that all old antivirus software has been removed and that both components of ESET have been successfully installed.
For those machines using Jamf Pro, ESET is already available as a deployable package in Self Service.
Before installing ESET, manually uninstall Sophos for Mac (or any other antivirus software) before installing ESET.
We now have a download that combines the Agent and the Antivirus into one easy installer:
Packaged ESET Agent and Antivirus Installer (now compatible with High Sierra 10.13.x)
If there are any problems with the packaged installer, download both components and run them separately:
- ESET Agent for OS X - (follow ESET's Mac OS X Agent Installation Instructions)
- ESET Antivirus for OS X
After installing, check your list of installed applications to verify that all old antivirus software has been removed and that both components of ESET have been successfully installed.
If you are a "Delegated Admin" for your area in Active Directory, login to the ESET Remote Administrator server to see the status of your client machines.
If the standard ESET fails to remove malware, consider ESET SysRescue Live: download and USB/CD creation instructions
