Windows XP End of Life

Now that Microsoft no longer provides security patches for Windows XP, it is important that Windows XP users do two things:

  • Exercise extreme caution surfing the web
  • Make plans to upgrade

If you are still running Windows XP, you should restrict any web browsing to known good sites, avoid using Internet Explorer, and, when reading email, refrain from opening any email containing an attachment unless you were expecting such an email from the sender.

If you have a college-owned computer that is running Windows XP and you wish to upgrade to Windows 7, please fill out the Windows XP Upgrade form.

At this time (April 9, 2014) the College is not placing network restrictions on Windows XP machines, though this policy could change without notice in response to changing circumstances.
