Windows XP to be blocked from campus network starting June 25

Submitted by Information Technology Services

On June 25, computers running Windows XP that are still connected to the K-State network will be blocked from accessing network resources including K-State applications, email, servers and the Internet.

Microsoft ended support of the Windows XP operating system on April 8. Information technology staff across campus have been working to upgrade computers or remove Windows XP computers from the network in preparation for the eventual blocking of Windows XP computers from the K-State network.

This is being done as a security measure in compliance with K-State's policy on computer security and software patches

To determine if you are still running Windows XP, click the Start button, then right-click Computer and select Properties from the list of options. In Properties, you will find the Windows version.

Faculty/staff who still have a computer running Windows XP are encouraged to contact their department tech support staff to arrange for the computer to be upgraded or removed from the network.

We thank you for your understanding as we work together to keep K-State a safe and productive computing environment.
