Windows XP notice comes this Saturday

As I have mentioned just a few time before [ 🙂 ], Microsoft will discontinue support for Windows XP on April 8th.

As a warning to users running unmanaged patched software computers, you will see the following window pop up on March 8th as well as the 8th of every month after unless you disable the window:

xp_expire

You can close the window by click on the “OK” button.

If you don’t ever want to see the message click on the box to the left of Don’t show this message again before you click on the “OK” button.

Note that this is for users who are using Windows Update for their Microsoft security updates and not if you are using WSUS, SCOM, etc. Unsure how third-party patch management will be addressed but I wouldn’t be surprised if they will be grouped in with WSUS, SCOM, etc.
