Some on-campus computers are displaying Microsoft Forefront virus warnings today, Thursday, July 21st. These warnings are legitimate, but are false-positives, due to a new virus definition file that detects an innocuous file as a potentially harmful one. Clicking “Clean Computer” on the message is recommended.
If you have questions about the legitimacy of any virus warning message, other computer pop-up or email, please contact the UMKC IS Call Center for assistance.
MyHR, a key tool available for university faculty and staff, will be upgraded with new features and functionality from 6pm on Thursday, June 30th through 8am on Tuesday, July 5th. During the upgrade period, MyHR will not be available. What does the upgrade mean for you?

Recent estimates report there are over 50 million blogs on the Web, and that number is growing every day. Sifting through so much information to get at what’s important to you can be overwhelming, but as the Web evolves, so do the tools and services used to access content.

Remote collaboration is becoming more and more popular, but if you’ve ever tried to send a colleague a large attachment via email, you may have encountered a size limit issue. Email attachments sent through Exchange are limited to 50MB, while the student Outlook Live system limits attachments to 25MB.
To alleviate this problem, UMKC Information Services has made available the Digital Dropbox. UMKC’s Digital Dropbox is an online tool that allows users to share files easily without the size restriction of an email system. It even allows for contacts outside the UMKC system to retrieve files shared by UMKC associates.
