UHealth IT Software Upgrades on University-Owned Computers

Please find below important information regarding scheduled software upgrades on university-owned computers which will occur on a rolling basis across the medical campus starting Thursday, February 27. If you have any questions, please contact the UHealth IT Help Desk by emailing help@med.miami.edu or calling 305-243-5999.  

Upgrade from Windows 7 to 10

To ensure your computer continues to receive Microsoft security patches, we are upgrading all machines to run Windows 10. 

If you are currently using software that requires Windows 7, you are encouraged to contact the software vendor and request an upgrade to a version compatible with Windows 10.

Transition from McAfee to Carbon Black

We are updating our current McAfee anti-virus, to Carbon Black endpoint detection and response (EDR) software. This will offer sophisticated detection of attacks and the ability to stop attacks from spreading to other systems on our networks. 

Schedule & Instructions

In an effort to reduce the impact on operations, upgrades are scheduled to occur on Thursdays after 8 p.m. To prepare, please save all of your work, close all programs, and leave your computer turned on.
