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.
