Update the License Key on a Personally-owned Mac or Windows Computer

Introduction

The college licenses ESET for use on the personally-owned computers of faculty, staff, and students. When the college renews its license, you may be prompted to update the license key.

In that case we recommend that you uninstall the old version and install the latest ESET. Here are the links to the installation instructions:
