Windows login issue on refreshing computers

October 13, 2011

There is a temporary problem when logging in to the Windows side of refreshing computers.  (Refreshing computers are ones which reset themselves after each person logs out.)  This does NOT affect your office computer.

Sometimes, when you attempt to log into Windows, you may get a notice that your password has expired.  

If you get this notice, do these 3 things:

  1. Hit "Cancel" on the main login screen
  2. Wait about 1 minute
  3. Try logging in again


This is a temporary problem.  ITS staff are moving throughout campus and permanently fixing this problem one each affected computer.  All the affected computers should be fixed by Oct 21st or sooner.

If you have any questions about this situation, please contact the ITS helpdesk at x5999.
