Windows Workstation Automatic Updates Notification

To CLA faculty with Windows workstations: 

In the following weeks, we'll be expanding the automatic update feature on your systems.  Once patched, your system will quietly update itself with the latest software and security revisions, including third-party packages like Flash, Java, and Acrobat Reader, all without interrupting your workflow.  This means no more annoying update notifications and [fewer] tech visits!

We'll be sending techs to your offices to apply the patch to your systems, and those receiving new machines will have it enabled by default.  

Laptop users will need to leave their systems in their office.  Once finished, updates will not require any work on your part.  After the first and third Wednesday of each month, your computer will fetch updates automatically, so long as it's powered on and connected to a campus Ethernet port.
