ISD to discuss Windows XP

The Otsego County Chamber of Commerce will host “GET2MODERN” at the Foothills Performing Arts and Civic Center on Market Street in Oneonta from noon to 1 p.m. Friday.

Representatives from Information Systems Division in Oneonta will discuss pending changes in “End of Support — What Does This Mean?” 

Microsoft has provided support for Windows XP for 12 years but now plans to invest resources to support more recent technologies, according to the company’s website. After April 8, technical assistance, including automatic updates that help protect personal computers, won’t be available, 

After that date, Windows XP still will work but might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses, the site said, and more apps and devices may not work as software and hardware manufacturers focus on more recent versions of Windows.

The ISD program is free and open to the public, said organizers who encourage attendees to “bring your lunch and learn.” Reservations are requested to be made with Shelly Giangrant at the Otsego County Chamber, 432-4500, ext. 207, by Tuesday.
