Software Removal Policy & Procedures
If you are graduating or otherwise leaving the College, you may need to remove software that was installed on your computer and licensed for your use while you were a student at Thomas. Please review the list of software packages below:
Remove Microsoft Endpoint Protection from your computer. The College licenses Microsoft Endpoint Protection only for current students. We recommend that you change to Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows PCs or ClamXAV for Macs. To remove Endpoint Protection from your Windows computer, go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, select Microsoft Endpoint Protection from the list of installed software, and click Remove. When finished, you will need to restart your computer.
Microsoft Campus Agreement software
- Graduates can keep any software purchased through Kivuto or SFS. Every installation of Office installed through the Office365 portal must be removed.
- Non-graduates must remove the software purchased under this agreement (from Kivuto or SFS).
- Former employees must remove the software purchased under this agreement or under the Home Use Program
Imagine licensed software
Software must be removed (including Visio, Project, Virtual PC, any Microsoft server). This is software you downloaded from the Imagine web site. Learn more about Imagine.
Windows Update Service – WSUS
Revert back to Microsoft Update Server. If you are using Microsoft Windows, your computer may have been configured to connect to the Thomas WSUS server prior to 2012 to receive Windows Updates notifications and download updates. To reverse this change, you will need to run this application. (Click Open, and/or Run to run the script.) This must be done to continue receiving product updates from Microsoft.
