Windows XP and Office 2003 are coming to end of life on April 8, 2014.
Microsoft is retiring support for Windows XP and Office 2003 on 8 April 2014. After this date Microsoft will no longer provide hot fixes, product updates, and most critical, security patches for Windows XP and Office 2003. This could affect your internal network security and regulatory compliance and potentially expose secure customer, partner, employee and organizational information. There is a high risk that malware targeting XP will increase. To avoid exposure to increased security risk, it is highly recommended that you do not continue to operate technologies once they are out of official support. That’s why we recommend that your business update its operating system.
We urge you to move quickly. As we all appreciate, changing infrastructure requires proper planning and preparation. We are committed to using our experience and expertise to assist you. For assistance, please submit an e-quotation here.

What will happen if I don’t upgrade? Running Office 2003 after the end-of-support date may expose your company to security risks and technology limitations, including:
Security Risk: No new security updates can leave unsupported and unpatched environments vulnerable to security risks.
Compliance Risk: End of support may result in an officially recognized control failure by an internal or external audit body. Non-compliance can lead to suspension of certifications and/or public notification of the organization's inability to maintain its systems and customer information.
Lack of Ongoing Updates: There will be no more non-security hot fixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates - limitations which could negatively impact your productivity and growth.
