Microsoft No Longer Supporting Windows XP

Microsoft No Longer Supporting Windows XP

April 10, 2014

Microsoft has announced that as of April 8th, 2014, they will no longer support Windows XP. This includes:

  • New security updates
  • Non-security hotfixes
  • Free or paid assisted support options
  • Online technical content updates

If you continue to use Windows XP after April 8, 2014, you will be vulnerable to security and compliance risks. With Windows XP no longer supported, it becomes difficult to know if security flaws are being exploited. Also, using an unsupported operating system may be an issue in certain industries where regulation requires software to be updated with patches and fixes.

What does this mean for you?

Eventually your computer will no longer have the latest security updates nor protect you from new threats. You may also face compatibility issues when installing new software on Windows XP.

What about Clinic Essentials?

Clinic Essentials is still compatible with Windows XP. If this changes in the future, we will notify you via newsletter.
