On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will end support of the Windows XP operating system. This means Microsoft will no longer be releasing updates, patches, or service packs to ensure the security and integrity of the operating system. 

Given the lack of support from the manufacturer, IUP will officially end support of this operating system on May 10, 2014. After this date, the IT Support Center will no longer be able to work on machines that are running Windows XP. This includes personal machines (students) and IUP-owned machines (faculty, staff). 

If you are still running Windows XP we recommend that you do the following. 

  1. If your hardware meets the minimum requirements, upgrade to Windows 7 or higher. 
  2. If your hardware does not meet the requirements, consider purchasing a new computer that will come pre-loaded with a new operating system. 
  3. If you have an IUP-owned machine that is still running Windows XP, please log an ihelp ticket and we will work with you to get a supported solution.
