Migration Services

microsoft windows xp End-Of-Life


Why should I upgrade?

On April 8th 2014, Microsoft officially stopped support for Windows XP, Exchange 2003, and Office 2003. This means that if you use this software, you are at risk. Because support has stopped, that means you will no longer recieve crucial updates, which include security updates. This leaves your systems at risk and potential theft and/or loss of data.

You should always upgrade to the latest Microsoft software versions to stay fully protected and always recieve crucial security updates for your system.
