Windows 7 Update To Be Applied

Beginning Monday, April 25, ITS will apply the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 update from Microsoft to campus network-attached Windows 7 computers.  This update may prompt for restarting office computers after it has installed.

If when this prompt appears it is convenient to allow the restart, please click on the “Reboot Now” button.  The process of completing this update can take up to 10-15 minutes depending on the speed of the computer.

If it is not convenient at the time, choose “Reboot later” and the update will apply at the time the computer is shut down or rebooted later in the day.  If applied during shutdown, a message stating “installing update 1 of 1” will appear when the shutdown is initiated.  The system will turn off after it has completed.

The next time login occurs after either choice, a one-time dialog box upon logon that indicates that the “Windows 7 Service Pack 1 successfully installed” will appear.  Simply click the “Close” button.
