Tuesday morning at 2:00am on July 29, 2014 campus computers will receive a software update to better protect against viruses, malware, and botnets. The update will automatically restart computers that are left on. Users are strongly urged to save any work before leaving Monday evening, July 28. For computers that are powered off, the restart will occur when powered back on. This campus-wide software update only applies to computers running the Microsoft Windows operating system.
In a continued effort to provide better service, faculty and staff can expect all future updates to be performed during a 2:00 AM Monday night/Tuesday morning. IT will notify the campus community of future updates well in advance. Restarts are expected to be required at least twice monthly on all computers. Some computers may require a technician to manually update the software and if this is needed, someone from IT will come by the department to assist.
