Windows XP is soon to be obsolete


Windows XP end of support date is April 8, 2014 (less than one year from now!) End of support refers to the date when Microsoft no longer provides monthly windows updates, automatic fixes, or technical assistance. What does this mean? Without Microsoft support, you will no longer be able to receive the monthly critical security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software that can steal your personal information. What can I do about it? My advice: nobody should continue using a computer with Windows XP operating system on the Internet after April 8, 2014. You should either replace all your XP computers now, if you have not already, or plan to replace them before that date. I recommend replacement now, especially for business users. I recommend a new computer with Windows 7.
