We strongly advise all staff and students to update their computer hardware and software as frequently as possible (always save your work before installing any updates).

Updating frequently:

  • fixes any software bugs on your operating system
  • means your anti-virus software is more likely to detect new viruses
  • is fast and easy on campus

You can update:

  • your computer's operating system
  • your computer's web browser
  • your computer's software
  • your web browser's plugins and add-ons
  • Java, which is used on many websites and applications
  • your computer's anti-virus and check that it's working properly

Do you have a question? Please refer to the AskOtago Service Portal about computer/software updates and patching
