Windows XP End-of-Life


Microsoft is ending its support for Windows XP as of April 8, 2014.  This will leave all PCs running Window XP vulnerable to security risks and viruses.  Not only will software built for Windows XP no longer be supported, but companies producing antivirus and firewall software for XP will have no reason to continue releasing updates for something consider to be dead.

I urge you to upgrade your home PC Windows XP OS to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.  All PCs at MCC should be running Windows 7.  If you have a PC or know of a PC on campus that is running Windows XP, please notify the CNS Technology Support Center @ x8324 to schedule an upgrade.
