Introduction

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise Edition is a virus protection software provided free of charge to students through Texas A&M's Software Evaluation and Licensing Library (SELL). If you have not already ordered it through the SELL, you will need to go to http://software.tamu.edu/ to obtain a copy of the software.

This document is divided into the following sections:

  • Getting Started (Obtaining McAfee VirusScan Enterprise Edition)

  • Installing McAfee VirusScan Enterprise Edition

Note: If you have a previous version of McAfee installed or already have virus protection software such as Norton Anti-Virus installed, you will need to uninstall it before continuing the installation of McAfee VirusScan Enterprise Edition.

 

Getting Started (Obtaining McAfee VirusScan Enterprise Edition)

Once you have placed your order to obtain McAfee VirusScan Enterprise Edition from the SELL, you should receive an e-mail to your Neo account within one hour that will contain the link you will need to follow in order to download the software. After you follow the link, simply save the target file to an easy-to-find location on your computer, such as the "Desktop."
