Windows XP End of Life -- April 8, 2014

Microsoft's End of Extended Support for Windows XP was April 8, 2014 (see: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/lifecycle#section_2 ).  This means that Microsoft is no longer developing or releasing security or other updates for Windows XP that guard against viruses, spyware or intrusion by hackers.  All systems on the JLab network are required to be patched!  For Windows XP, this is no longer possible.  In order to protect other systems throughout the lab, systems running Windows XP (or earlier) are no longer allowed to connect to the network or the guest network.

The CNI group has been working with users to migrate everyone to Windows 7 systems, or, in limited cases perform in-pace upgrades to Windows Vista before the deadline.  Currently, all XP systems have been upgraded, are quarantined or on other restricted networks as the last few upgrades are completed.
