Microsoft support for Windows XP ends, please change a.s.a.p\!
This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.
From April 8, 2014 Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP. Therefore C&CZ advises to change to a different operating system before that date. For PC’s within the Faculty of Science, one can change to C&CZ managed Windows 7 and/or Ubuntu 12.04. On a Windows7 managed PC, a department can have local administrator (localadmin) rights. One can also ask C&CZ to only install a PC with Windows 7 and/or Ubuntu 12.04. Please contact the C&CZ helpdesk if you want to make use of this. Please note that if a PC doesn’t have the required hardware, one will have to buy new hardware, e.g. upgrade memory or buy a new PC.
