Phoenix IT Support – XP Countdown

Don’t Hesitate! It’s Already Too Late!

On April 8th, 2014, Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2003! Historically, it has been proven that deployment of new upgrades to your business machines could take as much as 32 months to complete, depending on the size of your company. So, if you have an XP machine, it is time to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.

What does this mean?

According to Micorosoft, This means after April 8th, 2014 there will be no new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates. If you let your employees and customers use their Windows XP machine after this date, you could be exposing you, your business, and your customers to Security & Compliance Risks and lack of support from independent software vendors. Call your Phoenix IT Support for more information.

How Do You Upgrade?

Don’t worry. You have many options when it comes to upgrading your operating system to Windows 7 or 8. You can upgrade your current PC to Windows 7 or 8 if it meets the requirements to run the system. Download a free Upgrade Advisor from Microsoft to check your current system. If your current PC cannot support Windows 7 or 8, then it is time for a new PC. New PCs almost always come with Windows 7 or 8 already pre-installed on it. Call your Phoenix IT Support, MMA Systems, to begin your smooth migration to Windows 7 or 8.
