How do I install McAfee Endpoint Security antivirus software?


Product Information

McAfee Endpoint Security uses on-access scanning to guard against all types of viruses and malicious code, including new and unknown threats. Endpoint Security offers non intrusive protection as it scans for and removes viruses, worms, Trojans, and other malicious code from your device.

Endpoint Security automatically keeps your protection up to date.

Obtaining Software

The University of Oregon maintains a site-license for McAfee Endpoint Security. To download the software, please go to our Software Download Center and log in at the left.

Licensing and Restrictions

  • Current students, faculty, and staff can legally run our site-licensed software both at home and at work.
  • Our current offering is the McAfee Endpoint Protection Advanced (EPA) suite with Host Intrusion Detection System (HIDS) enabled protection. This is an enterprise edition which does not expire. For this reason, we recommend users uninstall any other antivirus software then install our site-licensed McAfee. It is not safe to run more than one antivirus program on the same computer.
  • Students are authorized to download the basic software via the Student Use option in Software Available for Download, but need to be aware that these licenses are unmanaged and therefore are unsupported by the UO or McAfee.
Note: Be sure that you do not have any other active antivirus program running on your computer before installing McAfee Endpoint Security. Running any two virus protection programs will result in the two of them fighting over resources, making the computer slower and potentially making the computer crash while running typical applications.
