Windows XP Support

On April 8, 2014 Microsoft will withdraw its free support for Windows XP. After that date, new security updates or technical support for the operating system will no longer be available. If you are receiving a pop up message select "Don't show this message again." to suppress it.

Operating System (XP) upgrades to Windows 7 for Laurier owned computers will be handled through the Evergreen program.

To clarify the Operating System (XP) is not expiring, technical support is expiring. XP will run just like it normally did. All existing Windows XP updates and fixes will still be available via Windows Update and WSUS after April 8, 2014.
