Time is running out for Windows XP. Are you ready?

What does end of support mean? Why should small businesses care?

When it was released, 12 years ago, Microsoft Windows XP was at the cutting edge of Microsoft technology. But 12 years is a long time in the IT world. So many things change every day!

So, if you’re still running Windows XP you are missing out on the performance and productivity of the latest technology, Windows 8, and the new generation of computers that run it.

But there’s a more pressing reason to upgrade. From April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide support for Windows XP users.

What does this mean?

  • No more security updates so Windows XP will become progressively more vulnerable to hacks, viruses and infection.

  • This could put personal and company data at risk. This is a bad thing in itself but could also expose you to regulatory and legal compliance issues.

  • Companies making software and hardware for Windows will probably stop supporting Windows XP.

In other words, there’s never been a better time to upgrade and make the most of Windows.
