Windows XP End of Support 4/8/2014

On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will be end support on one or its most successful products, Windows XP.  For those who can remember back that far, Windows XP was the successor of Windows 98 SE and Windows Millennium Edition.  Starting in 2002, Windows XP became the de facto desktop operating system for over 10 years.  On April 8, 2014 support will be ended for the product.  No new operating system updates will be pushed after that date.  In addition to the operating system updates being ended, there will be no more updates for Internet Explorer browsers running on XP.  Microsoft has announced that they will continue to publish definition file updates for installed versions of Microsoft Security Essentials and Defender until July 14, 2015 for computers with Windows XP.  Officially from Microsoft, computers running Windows XP will be no longer secure after April 8, 2014.  If you have a Windows XP computer, contact us today to upgrade to the next generation of technology.
