ESET AntiVirus Software
(For CSUSB-owned computers - both State and UEC - please use the campus version of ESET. The following is for personal/home/not-state-owned equipment use only.)
CSUSB students, faculty and staff are eligible to receive a free licensing code and installation of ESET Antivirus Protection on up to three devices. Each device will be protected from viruses, spyware, and malware for one year. ESET Antivirus is great because it eliminates virtually all threats on your PC/Mac to keep documents and private information safe.
What is spyware/malware?
Malware is software that is intended to damage or disable computer systems, and it will dramatically reduce your PC's productivity and speed. Without antivirus protection, you may be at risk for cybercrime such as identity theft or fraud. Spyware can covertly monitor your every keystroke and send vital personal information to third parties. If you make a purchase online, for example, your credit card information can be stolen and used to make fraudulent charges.
Why do I need ESET Antivirus Software?
Laptops become susceptible to viruses from file sharing, downloading full movies and simply from browsing the web. While it is generally true that PC's have a higher chance of falling victim to viruses, there are dangerous Mac-oriented malware hazards as well. As a result of being hacked by malware, all saved work on your device may be erased, and personal information may be stolen.
How do I install my ESET software?
Installing ESET Antivirus is easy! Visit the ESET Website and enter your CSUSB email address. You will receive a validation email and a unique activation key good for one year.
Please note - Your ESET activation key expires one year after installation. As long as you are affiliated with the university as a student, staff member, or faculty member, you may renew your ESET antivirus for free. To renew your ESET Antivirus, please visit the ESET Antivirus Download Page and complete the required fields. You will then be emailed a new activation key, good for another year's use.
