Windows 7 Users May Experience Extended Reboot Time

Due to recent Windows 7 updates released by Microsoft, Windows 7 users may experience an extended update reboot cycle.

Please do not force reboot, power down or interfere with the update. Interrupting the update may cause your operating system to fail and require assistance from the Help Desk to complete the update or even rebuild your system.

The update may take several hours. If you need to borrow a laptop while your computer is updating, loaner laptops are available at the Circulation Desk in the Farley Library.

This update only affects Windows 7 users, not the majority of campus using Windows 10 or Mac OS. 

If you have any further questions or believe your system has crashed during the update, please contact the Help Desk at ext. 4357.
