Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 – Support Ends 8th April 2014

WHY is Microsoft ending support for Windows XP and Office 2003?

Microsoft Windows XP was launched in December 2001 and Office 2003 in October 2003, both will no longer be supported after 8th April 2014. Microsoft has a policy of supporting these products for a minimum of 10 years hence the announcement has been made. It is therefore very important that any organisation using these versions start to make plans to upgrade their PC/Laptops with either Windows 7 or 8 and Office 2013.

WHAT does end of support mean to you and your business?

After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will not release any new security updates, non-security hotfixes or online technical content updates.

Running Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 in your business after April 2014 may expose your company to potential risks because there may be vulnerabilities in the operating system or the Office programs. This may lead to a higher risk of harmful viruses, spyware and other malicious software trying to steal your personal information. CNC is able to identify all the PC/Laptops which have this version of the software and advise you on the best course of action.
