  • Hi Robbie,

    Very sorry for my delay.

    Please try the following MS article for troubleshooting this error “support for this operating system has ended and system center endpoint protection is no longer protecting your PC.” on SCEP.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/protect/deploy-use/troubleshoot-endpoint-client


    May I know that your current endpoint protection client is Windows XP?

    PCs running Windows XP should not be considered to be truly protected, even with anti-malware signatures and updates to the engine, and it is important to complete your migration to a current supported operating system so you can receive regular security updates to protect your computer from malicious attacks. Anti-malware products have limited effectiveness on a PC which is not up-to-date with all the security updates.

    We also have found in our research that the effectiveness of antimalware solutions on out-of-support operating systems is limited. Given the fast pace of technology, it has become increasingly important that customers use modern software and hardware that is designed to help protect PCs and servers against today’s threat landscape. For this reason, there is no guarantee that every OS that reaches end-of-life will be provided a grace period.

    For more information about this topic, we can refer to the following blog,

    Hope above information can help you. If you have any question or concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Robbie,

    I’m very sorry that I missed your update.

    Microsoft is ending support for the Windows Server 2003 operating system on July 14, 2015. After that date, this product will no longer receive: Security patches that help protect PCs from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. We can refer to the following link that we could also query other versions lifecycle.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/lifecycle/search/?p1=3198

    Due to Win 2003 used the same OS-based version as XP, accordingly and especially, security updates for built-in firewall and AV like SCEP anti-malware protection were no longer release out of lifecycle.

    So we strongly suggest you migrate to current OS versions for greater security, performance and innovation.

    <<which way can still help to get the continuous protection of scep?

    Yes, based on my experience, we can still search and utilize some third party security products which are compatible within your windows version. Please note: It is not recommended to enable two or more security Anti-Virus software on one PC.

    Here's the thread discussed security products support windows 2003 for your reference. Hope this helps.

  • Hi Michael,

    Thanks for your detailed answer and troubleshooting.

    The answer to your question, is that the current endpoint proteciotn client is windows_2003_r2_server_enterprise_edition_service_pack_2.

    As to your instruction, my question is

      1. what is the end date of lifecycle for windows_2003_r2_server_enterprise_edition_service_pack_2?

      2. the reason that the SCEP anti-malware protection is no longer to pretect PC, is because of end of life for windows_2003_r2_server_enterprise_edition_service_pack_2?

    if so, except updating OS version, which way can still help to get the continuous protection of scep?

    Thanks for your help.

    Best Regards,

    Robbie
