Windows XP

Microsoft Windows XP at LJMU

Microsoft Windows XP is no longer officially supported by Microsoft and IT Services, any of our managed systems still running Windows XP have been disabled from the network should up upgraded immediately. If you have a laptop which is still running Windows XP it is at risk to security vulnerabilities (as updates are no longer provided by Microsoft) and it is important that you get in touch with the IT Helpdesk on x5555 to arrange for the laptop to be upgraded to Windows 7 (Please note the laptop will be wiped as part of the process and all data lost so it is important that you backup any of your personal data before requesting the upgrade). For more information and to request to have your Laptop/PC upgraded please see the 'Windows 7' help pages:
