At IU, what was Get Connected and how do I remove it?

In the past, students who needed access to the Ethernet network or wireless access to university databases needed to complete the Get Connected tool to ensure that their computers were correctly configured to securely access the IU campus network. The process has changed, and Get Connected has been replaced; see Using OnGuard for students who need direct network access to databases and/or remote desktop

To uninstall Get Connected, use Add/Remove programs or Programs and Features from the Control Panel.

Note:
For help navigating, see Getting around in Windows.

During the uninstall process, the "Get Connected Installer" window will present "Uninstall Options" for removing some of the security enhancements Get Connected installed. To optimize the security of your computer the data stored on it, you choose Do Not Change for these options.
