Lawyers, Don’t be an April Fool for Windows XP, by Jim Calloway, Jim Calloway Law Practice Tips Blog


Microsoft has sent out its warning that the “end of life” for Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 is April 2014. See Microsoft’s notice at http://tinyurl.com/mnn29f6.

What does that mean for those still using Windows XP who have not upgraded to Windows 7 or 8? It means that Microsoft will stop providing security patches and upgrades for older versions of Windows that keep malware at bay after April 2014. If you are still using Windows XP after April, tech experts predict a malware’s open season on your computer.

If you and your IT folks have not discussed this upcoming change, start talking and make adjustments to your technology budget. -CCE
