Microsoft Windows XP, Server 2003 End of Life

As you may have heard, Microsoft has announced the retirement (End of Life) for Windows XP, Server 2003, and Office 2003 on April 8, 2014.

Some of the issues you may encounter if you have an XP system:

  • Potential security risks to personal information
  • Cannot use more secure and newer Internet Explorer
  • Stuck on Internet Explorer 8, currently version 11
  • End of Security update support and updates
  • Windows will no longer update any fixes of known bugs
  • Many newer products may require Windows 7 or newer

How to determine if you have an XP system:

  • When you are logged into your computer, simply look at your START button (lower left corner) and if it has the word START, then this is most likely an XP computer.

What to do if you have an XP system:

  • RJR Solutions is recommending that you upgrade/replace your computer with a Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer, PRIOR to April 2014.
