Window XP: Updates are Discountinued Increasing Vulnerability of the Systems

Microsoft will no longer release new security patches intended to eliminate threat vulnerabilities in this older version of Windows. According to Microsoft, continuing to use Windows XP after April 8, 2014 may make systems more vulnerable to security risks, harmful viruses, spyware, and other malware. Business owners running the Windows XP operating system on a desktop PC or laptop computer will be affected.  This decision by Microsoft has also prompted other software to stop providing updates to their versions when run under Window XP.

How can you stay protected?
Stay protected by upgrading to the latest Windows operating system or by getting a new PC with the latest Windows operating system.
