University-Owned Computers to Receive Windows 7 Updates

Friday, March 21, 2014

In order to ensure that all Windows 7 university-owned computers have the most recent updates, ITS will be sending updates to these campus computers beginning the week of March 24 and continuing over the next several months. As mentioned in a recent email from ITS, these updates will be pushed out, a few at a time, to cause the least amount of disruption to faculty and staff. In addition, no updates will be sent the last week of classes (4/28) or the week of exams (5/2 – 5/8) in the unlikely event there is an issue. 


Important Information:  Windows 7 updates will be sent to computers between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. so please leave computers on overnight. Also, please save any and all documents you are working on before leaving for the day, as a reboot is often required to complete the process.


If you have questions or problems regarding the updates, please contact the Technology Assistance Center (TAC) at 910-962-4357 or so a consultant can be assigned to assist you.
