  • Windows XP and other software soon to be ‘end-of-life’.

In just over 12 months Microsoft will be retiring the following products:

  • Windows XP
  • Office 2003
  • Server 2003

This means that Microsoft will no longer provide Support for this software, and will no longer provide Security Updates!
See Windows Lifecycle for more information

What does this mean to me?

Any devices which are running this software will be at a significant risk from viruses and malicious software. It is imperative that this software is replaced or upgraded.
As well as the security risk you will not be able to run newer software including Internet Explorer 9, Internet Explorer 10 and Office 2013.

What’s next?

Over the next 12 months Eitex will be upgrading devices which are installed with Windows XP and Server 2003. This will be done by either carrying out a software upgrade, or replacing the machines.
To book a slot between March 2013 and March 2014 please get in touch, we have already taken a number of bookings so please let me know ASAP to secure your date/s.
An upgrade plan will be discussed prior to your confirmed date, along with any associated costs.

How much will it cost?

There are a number of options available to you to upgrade including:
• Windows 7 or 8 and Microsoft Office via subscription • Purchased upgrade • Machine replacement
If you choose to replace your machines we are also able to offer Microsoft subsidised finance at very competitive rates!
