To enhance performance and reliability, information technology services will upgrade Internet Explorer 6 to IE 8 on all University Windows-based computers the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 3.
When you turn on your computer Wednesday morning, an install window will appear on your screen.
Please do not try to close the install window. It will close automatically.
After the install window closes, a countdown window will appear to notify you that your computer will restart in three minutes.
Your computer will restart automatically, and IE 8 should be installed. Two things to note about the IE 8 upgrade: 1. Any sites you bookmarked in IE 6 will automatically appear in your list of bookmarks in IE 8; 2. The Newslink web page will be the default IE 8 homepage.
Contact the ITS Service Desk at 977-4000 with any concerns.
