Software that can protect your computer against viruses, trojan horses, and worms are commonly referred to as "anti-virus software." ITS has purchased a number of licenses from McAfee, Inc. so that University of Hawaii faculty, staff, and students, may download a copy of the anti-virus software at no extra charge.
A valid UH Username is required to download the software from this site. You have a UH Username if your e-mail address is of the form email@example.com. Usernames on other systems (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.) will not work. If you need one, you may request a UH Username online or contact the ITS Help Desk if you are not sure.

If you are using Windows 2000 or MacOS versions below 10.5, your system is too old to be used with the current versions of the anti-virus software and you should consider upgrading your Operating System (OS) and, very likely, your hardware. Please view the ITS Microcomputer Recommendations to see what the minimum recommended hardware requirements are. An alternative is to purchase a competing anti-virus product from the Bookstore or computer store that is able work with your setup.
If you are using any other OS not previously mentioned, e.g., UNIX, Linux, OS/2, etc., then we do not have the anti-virus products for your computer.
If you are not sure, please check with someone in your department or contact the ITS Help Desk at Help Desk or phone 956-8883 (neighbor islands: (800) 558-2669).
