    Did you know that your Windows Server 2003 including Windows Small Business Server 2003 has reached end of support?
    We can help you put an upgrade plan in place to reduce costs and increase security. Keep in mind that end of support means that you will no longer receive updates or patches to combat security issues after July 14, 2015. Without updates, your systems are vulnerable to security and compliance issues. If your organization processes Visa and MasterCard transactions, for example, you could have problems with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

    To find your 25-character key, you need to remove the silver scratch-off panel on the Certificate of Authenticity which is supplied with your product. This is easily done with a coin or fingernail. Don't press too hard or you could damage the key making it unreadable.

    Remember, to avoid damaging your product key:

    • Don't use any other tool apart from a coin. You can also use your fingernail
    • Don't apply too much pressure
    • Don't try to peel the scratch layer off
