Windows XP Support is ending!

On April 8, 2014, support and updates for Windows XP will no longer be available.

As a result, after April 8, 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC. Microsoft will also stop providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP on this date. (If you already have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, you will continue to receive antimalware signature updates for a limited time, but this does not mean that your PC will be secure because Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates to help protect your PC.)

If you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimize for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter greater numbers of apps and devices that do not work with Windows XP.

How to stay protected?
To stay protected you will need to update your computer to run a more recent operating system such as Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

Please contact us and one of our technicians can evaluate your computer to check if these update can be supported on your computer system.
