I was at a customer appreciation evening tonight hosted by my realtor Adam Mills @ottawaishome. As I was handing out business cards and trying to drum up business, I got into a conversation about computers. Did you know support for Windows XP is ending on April 8, 2014? What does end of support mean, read this. If you’re running Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3) after support ends you will not receive all important security updates for Windows, you’ll need to upgrade to a later version, such as Windows Vista, 7 or 8. In the IT corporate world a lot of businesses have successful made the transition to Windows 7…we are in the process of doing that at my office.
All the end of support dates are listed here. It’s always important to stay up to date with all the Service packs.
What do I do when I finish helping my guy or someone else with computer stuff, I always say “Thanks for calling Michèle’s helpdesk”.
Remember to stay up to date and as always contact me if you have any questions.
