Update – Internet Explorer for Windows Security Issue

I know that this bug has been worrying many of you, so I’m happy to report that after update from Microsoft, Internet Explorer will be safe to use once again. Most computers on campus are set up for automatic Windows Updates, but it’s not a bad idea to try to run updates manually to see if the computer has been updated and to run them if it hasn’t.
Note: You can also view these instructions on our website at: www.augustana.edu/x59793.xml

To run your Windows Updates:
  1. Go to the Start Menu:

  4. If you see a screen that says “Windows is up to date” (like the one below), your computer is up to date. If not, proceed to step 5.

  5. If your PC is not up to date, click on Check for updates on the left side of the window and then click on Install updates

Once all of the updates have been installed, it should be safe for you to use Internet Explorer.
