Microsoft Pops Up Warnings for end of XP

With the impending end of Windows XP support about a month away, those machines that are still on the legacy operating system are going to be told in a way that cannot be avoided. By using pop up windows, users will be forewarned that after April 7th, Microsoft will no longer patch those systems. In addition, Microsoft Security Essentials will also no longer be updated to new versions.

If you are a business still using XP, you are subjecting yourself to malicious attacks, malware, and possibly fines for potential compliance violations. If you need the operating system for legacy apps, there are ways to still protect yourself on those individual machines. Contact us if you need help migrating painlessly or have concerns on systems that cannot be updated.
