Reminder: Please Leave your Computer On…


Another New Microsoft Vulnerability:   ETS will be updating all office desktop computers with the latest Microsoft patches.  By using a software application called Update Expert, ETS can batch-update office computers with the latest MS patches via the network automatically - providing you leave your computers on.   We are requesting that you leave your computers on overnight on the date that your building or location is scheduled to be updated.  This will help to expedite the process of applying the patches to your PC.

Schedule for Microsoft Patch Updates for Office Computers

May 18, Tuesday buildings 1,3,4,5,6,12 and DCC
May 19, Wednesday       buildings 2,7,8,9,10,11,21,ATC and PSTF

Please remember to close all documents that you are working on and logoff the network before you leave for the night. If by chance you forget to leave your computer on for the scheduled patch update, the next time you turn your computer on, it will automatically start applying the patches to your PC.  The process will cause your computer to re-boot and will take approximately 15-20 minutes.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the HELP desk at 4357 (HELP).

Thank you very much for your cooperation.
