Windows XP and Office 2003 are officially retired


On Tuesday, April 8, 2014 Microsoft ended all support for Windows XP and Office 2003.

If you are using Office 2003 or Windows XP, please make plans to upgrade now. Now that Microsoft has ended support, you will be exceptionally vulnerable to hackers and malware.

We encourage you to take this seriously. Any data you save on a computer running Windows XP will be at risk, and that computer can be compromised and used to attack other computers on the Internet.

To upgrade your own computer, the Technology Service Desk will offer advice and guidance. If you need to upgrade a work computer, please contact your local IT support.
