On Windows computers:

Once you have your Apple computer up to date, you are ready to connect to our network and register your computer.


Updating/Installing Antivirus
For Windows computers, there is one more step to make sure everything goes smoothly – updating your antivirus software.
Helpful hint: Having more than one antivirus product on your computer at a time will cause your computer to run slow and erratic. Before installing a new antivirus product, please make sure you uninstall the old one.

On Windows 8, you can use the built-in program called Windows Defender.

On Windows 7, we recommend installing Microsoft’s free antivirus product called Microsoft Security Essentials.


If you have any questions regarding updating your computer for registration on the Gustavus network, please let us know.
