Security Patches and Windows Updates
From time to time, Information Technology Services make security patches, also known as updates, available for installation on all Saint Louis University Windows-based desktop and laptop computers. These patches help protect your PC from vulnerabilities within the Microsoft Windows Operating System. Please take the time to install the updates by following the step-by-step instructions below.
Installation of the patches should to be done the prior to Friday at 4 a.m. the week the patches are released. After that time, ITS will begin to automatically install these security patches to all desktops and laptops that have not made the updates.
Please Note: updates do not apply until your computer is rebooted, or restarted. To ensure that the security updates have been installed, all desktops and laptops need to be rebooted.
