What is end of support?

After 12 years, support for Windows XP has now ended. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. PCs running Windows XP should not be considered to be protected, and it is important that you migrate to a current supported operating system – such as Windows 8.1. Support for Office 2003 has also ended and users can no longer receive assisted support, online content updates and software updates from Microsoft Update.

Why should I upgrade?

If you’re running either Windows XP or Office 2003 you should plan to take action soon to guard against security risks, software issues, system failure and lack of technical support. Without critical Windows XP security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information.
