Windows XP discontinued

Microsoft is finally discontinuing Windows XP across the globe. Support will definitely end by April 8th, 2014. XP is 14 years old and is completely outdated. It represents a liability to businesses since it is a security risk and Microsoft will not be providing updates nor security patches for XP any more. Having XP on a workstation means leaving a door open to hackers that can obtain company information and pose a threat to your entire network.

If you are running XP on any of its versions you will notice a pop-up message as soon as you start the computer. This message is being pushed by Microsoft and it signals the end of life of the product.

We urge you to contact Telx so we can suggest an update plan to Windows 7 and make sure all your workstations are XP free.
