Keeping Your Computer Secure and Up To Date
Without security software and the latest updates, your computer will very likely become infected with a virus.
Security software can be downloaded from Bevoware. Bevoware features Microsoft Forefront Antivirus which helps prevent viruses from infecting your computer. Please download and install MS Forefront Antivirus.
Automatic Updates ensures that the latest updates are installed on your computer. Updates protect your computer from operating system vulnerabilities/viruses and keep it running smoothly.
To use Automatic Updates, follow these instructions.
Turn On Automatic Updates
- Right click on My Computer, and select Properties.
- Select the Automatic Updates tab.

- Select Automatic (Recommended).
- Click Apply and then OK.
Install the Updates
When you see the Automatic Updates pop up window on the bottom right corner of your desktop, click on it to install the updates.
Warning: Be careful to avoid emails that claim to install updates! Such emails are hoaxes which can install viruses on your computer. Don’t hesitate to check with the CE Technology Support staff if you have any questions/concerns.
Click Install in the Ready to Install window. If you would like the updates installed later, then click Remind Me Later. It is best to install the updates within the same day.
