Update on the Argent Court Data Centre power-down in December

We can now confirm details of several major services that won't be affected by the Argent Court data centre power-down on 13 and 14 December.


Software Center Changes its look

The Software Center is getting a makeover. Gone are the application lists to be replaced with the more tile like look that is currently being promoted by Microsoft. The main functionality remains the same, with the tabs that were across the top in the old version becoming the menu that's down the left hand side.

Changes to Applications

We're currently working to simplify the way you access applications on the Managed Windows 7 Desktop. Some applications will move to the Software Center and some that have very little use will be retired.

Internet Explorer Upgrade: 14 May 2014

IT Services will upgrade Internet Explorer on all managed Windows 7 desktops to version 10 from midday Wednesday 14 May 2014.

This won't cause any major disruption to your work – the update will take place quietly in the background, and will apply itself the next time you log in to your computer. Your favourites should not be affected.

Windows XP and IE 8 unsupported and unsafe after 8 April (Reminder)

Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP and Internet Explorer 8 from Tuesday 8 April 2014. This means that many services (like Warwick's webmail) may not work with Windows XP or IE 8 after this point, and, because of the lack of security patches from Microsoft, Windows XP will not be safe to use from an information security point of view.
