Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP on April 8th, 2014.
Any computer still running XP will be vulnerable to attacks and intrusions, putting the computer, the user, and the entire University at risk. For this reason, Windows XP computers will not be able to connect out to the internet. Connections to internal resources (Email, Blackboard) will be available.
Any computer found running Windows XP on or after April 8th without an exemption will be blocked from the internet.
The latest update to Java, Java 7 update 51, will impact the functionality of Chat/Virtual Classroom and the ability to upload multiple files. We recommend to not update Java at this time.
If your computer has been updated, please roll back to Java 7 update 45. You can download it from here for a PC: Oracle Archive for Java SE Runtime Environment 7u45 .
If you have any questions, please contact the IMS Service Desk: Email IMS-ServiceDesk@uthscsa.edu | Call 210-567-7777
