7. If the Bradford agent fails you likely don't have an anti-virus active. In that case, it's best to enable Windows Defender (click here for instructions). You can also install a free anti-virus software, like Avast, or Malwarebytes.  


If you still aren't able to connect, please come by our Walk-In Desk located on Main Campus in Allman Building, Room 106!
