Windows XP End of SupportMicrosoft ended support for Windows XP on April 8th. If you have an older computer it is time to move on to newer and better technologies.

After April 8th, Microsoft will no longer publish any security updates for the 12 year old operating system, and they will no longer support the development of software from third parties.  There will be little to no new software developed by any manufacturer for Windows XP, and computers with this OS will become increasingly vulnerable to security risks, viruses, and hacker exploits.

On the positive side, upgrading to the latest versions of Windows and Office provide a productivity boost. As always, we are here to help you with the transition.  We are actively and efficently rolling out zippy new computers to our clients.
