IT Support System Alerts

As of Friday, January 13 at 8:30 AM- All systems are operational.

Users of Windows 7 PCs managed with Novell Zenworks will have a Microsoft hotfix installed starting on:
 Friday January 13th

The update takes about 2 minutes and occurs silently in the background. The fix will prompt you to reboot but when you are prompted you can delay the reboot and change the re-prompt interval from 10 minutes to every 4 hours. We are releasing this on a Friday to minimize the number of reminders as many users shutdown their machine for the weekend. In addition Microsoft monthly patches come out this week so Friday is a good time to shutdown/restart your system to apply these patches.
This Microsoft hotfix is needed in our environment and fixes a problem with handling system drivers signed with newer security technology.  This does not affect Windows 10 machines although they will be receiving Microsoft's normal monthly updates this week.


If you have any questions or concerns please contact the IT Support Centre at 585-4685 or email or submit an Online_Service_Request
