Windows XP support coming to an end

Wed, 2014-01-22 15:33

On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will officially end support for Windows XP. In consequence, McGill IT Customer Services (ICS) will also stop supporting Windows XP at that time. Over the past year and a half we have been actively upgrading centrally-supported computers on campus to Windows 7, and we have encouraged LAN administrators in non-centrally supported units to do the same. To date 100% of all public computers and 81% of centrally-supported administrative computers have now been upgraded.
