Windows XP security updates ending April 8th, 2014

The end of Windows XP

The end of Windows XP  is almost upon us. After a 13 year run, security patches will no longer be sent to your Windows XP computer beginning April 8th, 2014. Without these security updates, all those Windows XP PCs will be vulnerable to viruses, spyware and malware.

30 percent of Internet-connected PCs run Windows XP, no they wont stop working on April 8th, they will continue running like normal, they will not receive critical security, software and driver updates that keep your computer safe and running smoothly. Over time Windows XP will become increasingly full of security holes. Microsoft itself has dubbed the condition “Zero day forever”

What can you do to protect yourself?

  1. If your computer can support a newer operating system, upgrade to Windows 7
  2. Purchase a new computer

We can help you evaluate your computer and determine what the best course of action is. We can upgrade a capable Windows XP machine to Windows 7 for around $170, we also offer very competitive pricing on new computers
