What is happening?

To improve security, campus has adopted a new mechanism for how Windows Updates are delivered to your computer. Previously, updates were sent to your machine each month via Software Center and the machine would notify you that updates were pending and installing. This is changing over to a new service that leverages Windows Update rather than Software Center.

Below are examples of the new notifications given to end users to make it as easy as possible to comply to the security requirements to be patched and updated.

When is it happening?

Migration to the new update procedure will begin July 20th, 2022.

Why is it happening?

We are migrating to a more effective patching solution to ensure a higher patching and security compliance standard. This has been adopted by many departments across campus and has been tested on other College of Computing machines.

Who is affected?

All staff who have machines running Windows 10 or 11 that are managed by the TSO.

What do you need to do?

No user action is required. If you notice any issues with your Windows Update, please contact the Help Desk.

Who should you contact for questions?

Feel free to contact the TSO Help Desk (CCB 212, 404.894.7065,
