Should I be installing Windows Updates?

In Windows 10, updates to your operating system happen automatically whether you are on or off campus. In most cases, your computer/laptop will inform you when new updates are ready to install. When that occurs, follow the prompts which usually request a reboot of the computer after updates have been downloaded and installed. However, it is safest to manually check that you are up to date. To see available updates and manage your options, select  the Start button in the lower left corner, and then go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for updates or for more information visit Update Windows. If you have questions about Windows updates or need additional assistance verifying they are installing correctly, please contact us directly at 1-800-373-7521 or helpdesk@ssndcp.org.

I think my computer might have a virus, what should I do?

Anytime you think your computer has been compromised in any way, we recommend that you call us immediately 1-800-373-7521. There are various ways we can verify if your computer has been compromised or has a virus and can work with you on repairing it.

What should I do if I receive a suspicious call from someone in “Tech Support”?

Any SSND CP IT staff that calls you will identify themselves as such and will generally let you know what campus they are calling from. We never ask for any credit card information or any kind of payment for receiving tech support. We are normally responding or following-up to a request made by the community or leadership. To report any suspicious tech support calls, contact us at 1-800-373-7521 or helpdesk@ssndcp.org.
