October Patch Weekend

Summary:        

This is a reminder that the monthly Microsoft updates for SLCC computers are available for installation on all staff/faculty/lab computers.  This will include the 2004 feature update for Windows 10 systems which can take 45 minutes or more to install and require one or two reboots. We recommend either installing this manually ahead of the weekend or making certain your computer is left on over the weekend. 

 

Computers will also receive patches for some non-Microsoft programs such as Apple products, Firefox, Google Chrome, Citrix Workspace, Adobe Acrobat Reader, conferencing software, and others.  The college does push updates to off-site computers, however a device that is off-site for an extended time may be at risk and should be updated manually.

 

The full details on the update process can be found here. However, there are two preferred ways to install these updates:

1.     You can initiate these updates at your convenience prior to the patch deadline on Sunday night (10-18-2020).  You can find the reminder to install the updates in your lower right task tray.

2.     Simply leave your computer turned on over the weekend and it will update itself on Sunday night with no user intervention required. The computer MUST BE ON for this to occur.

If you do not install the updates prior to next Monday morning, your computer will install the updates the next time it is turned on.  A warning message that your computer is installing updates will appear and it will subsequently reboot.
