Starting on September 9, 2014 Internet Explorer will begin prompting users to install the most recent version of Java when they attempt to access sites that use the Java plugin. This type of prompt is already present in Chrome and Firefox.
In order to improve IT security throughout McGill systems, IT Services has installed the Java Plugin version 6 update 45 on all centrally-managed Windows (PCs) computers.
Faculty and staff members: If you have not already done so, please be sure to log off, but keep your computer powered ON for at least 10 minutes so that the Java update can be installed through the automated update process. If you’re not sure how to log off, see these instructions.
