Resolution

You do not have to take an action, updates are applied automatically as follows.

Microsoft generally releases Windows updates the second Tuesday of each month.

  • WKU ITS immediately applies updates to machines used by TSS employees.
  • If TSS experiences no issues within three days, updates distributed to student worker computers across campus.

If an update requires a computer restart, it will occur automatically between 12:00 AM and 5:00 AM on Friday. To avoid a restart, please make sure your windows computer is fully updated before Friday at midnight.
