It’s a great time to upgrade your hardware as well as your software. Twelve years ago, Windows XP was released. Vulnerabilities the will be discovered in Windows XP after its end will not be able to be addressed by any security updates by Microsoft.

Security & Compliance Risks: Unsupported and unpatched environments are vulnerable to security risks. This may result in an officially recognized control failure by an internal or external audit body, leading to suspension of certifications, and/or public notification of the organization’s inability to maintain its systems and customer information.

With support ending, you may be asking yourself, now what?


Microsoft Business and Developer products receive a minimum of 10 years of support. Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 support will end April 8, 2014. The software is old and becoming outdated.

If you haven’t started migrating to a current desktop, now is the time. Enterprise deployment takes from 18 to 32 months, so take action immediately and upgrade.


After April 8, 2014, there will be no more security updates, non-security hotfixes, and paid assisted support or online technical content updates.

Running Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 after the end of the supported date will put your computer at risk, such as:
  • Security and Compliance Risks – Unsupported software is vulnerable to security risks.
  • Lack of Independent Software and Hardware – Manufacturers support
  • Get Current – Increase your employees productivity and efficiency with improved PC security and management.


There are many options for your business to move into Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8 Pro.

If your PC does not meet system requirements, you may also want to consider upgrading your hardware. It is likely if you are running Windows XP then your computer is getting old. New business PC’s come with Windows 8 Pro installed.
