UMR IT will be distributing critical security updates via the SUS servers on all IT-supported Windows XP machines with a campus-standard install on Monday, August 20. These updates will improve the security of the Windows XP operating system and Microsoft Office 2002 and 2003.
Customers who use IT-installed computers (faculty, staff, CLC computers, etc.) may be prompted to reboot their computers starting 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug 21. Customers with administrative privileges may be prompted before 3 p.m. The affected computers will automatically reboot themselves if no one is logged in.
Internet Explorer 7 (IE 7) will NOT be installed as a part of this update. IE 7 is not yet compatible with a number of Web applications commonly used on the UMR campus, including PeopleSoft and Documentum Web Publisher. IE 7 will not be installed on campus-standard machines until after UMR IT determines that IE 7 is compatible with current campus Web applications.
For more information, contact the UMR IT Help Desk at 341-HELP or submit an online Help Request .
