Windows XP Support Ends – April 8, 2014

Tombstone for Windows XP

On Tuesday, April 8, 2014, Microsoft support and updates for Windows XP will end. It is extremely important to keep your computer and its contents protected! If you continue using Windows XP after support ends, your computer will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.

Beginning April 8, any compromised device running Windows XP will be filtered off from UF’s network. All XP devices will be filtered off from UF’s network at the close of the 2014 Spring semester.

Faculty and staff with machines running Windows XP should consult their local desktop support team to identify a solution. Students, faculty, and staff that have Windows XP as the operating system on personal devices should seek advice from the UF Computing Help Desk:

Advice is also available in person (Visit 132 HUB) or by calling (352) 392-4537 [392-HELP].
