HOW TO ACTIVATE YOUR FREE WINDOWS DEFENDER

 

 

 

 

 

 


As a UTEP student, you get free tech support for your personal computer at the Technology Support Center, Library Room 300.

 

 


 

Our Help Desk can assist you with most of your technology related questions, or send you to a more specialized area in the center, like the Computer Clinic.

 

 

At our Computer Clinic, we scan and install the latest anti-virus or operating system to your personal computer, and assist with other technical issues.

 

 

Or you can come in and just get work done in our friendly environment, with all the resources you need close by. Our workstations are spacious and comfortable.

At the time of purchase, be sure to include the 3-year basic warranty on them, because with the exception of accidental damages, purchasing the warranty combined with UTEP’s free tech support, will help to keep your new laptop functional during the warranty term at no additional cost. Please DO NOT add the Microsoft Office or Security software, but instead visit us at the Library, room 300 to get this software installed for FREE.
