On April 8th, 2014 Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP.

The demise of Microsoft Windows XP means technical support will stop and there will be no automatic updates to help protect you and your PC.

If members of staff are still using Windows XP then they now need to upgrade their operating system:

  • To upgrade University owned machines, please contact the ISS Service Desk who will forward the request to your local IT support team.
  • To upgrade personal machines, members of staff can either contact The Workshop, who will upgrade machines for staff for around £50-£60 (including the cost of the Operating System). Alternatively those who are happy to carry out the upgrade themselves can download the latest version of Microsoft Windows for £6.15 at the ELMS software download site.
