Windows XP Support Expiry Reminder


Attention all Windows XP Users

Support for Windows XP will end in less than two weeks.

After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or patches for Windows XP.

If you are running Windows XP you must take action immediately to prevent your computer/private data from potentially being compromised.  Please do one of the following:

  • Remove the Windows XP computer from the Network
  • Request an Exception – Request support to protect special case XP computers
  • Upgrade the operating systems to Windows 7
  • Purchase a new computer with Windows 7/8

Failure to take action will likely result in a compromised computer which will be removed from the campus network without warning.  Windows XP computers will pose a risk to the campus network and data.

If you have at least one XP computer (or are unsure) and would like more assistance, please contact your local IT Staff or contact the ICT Help Desk at (306) 966-4817
