ritchie58 Posted January 27, 2014 Report Share Posted January 27, 2014 Are you still using Microsoft's Windows XP Operating System? If you do as of April 8, 2014 Microsoft will no longer support this platform. So what does that mean? It means that you will no longer recieve any updates for XP. That includes security patches, the monthly Malicious Software Removal Tool, and bug fixes which could leave your computer vulnerable to malware and hackers since no new security updates will take place. It will take no time at all for the bad guys to take advantage of and exploit this situation. Given the fact that millions of users worldwide are still using this OS some folks are not happy at all with this decision by Microsoft. In fact it is estimated that 90% of all ATM's in the country still rely on XP and many businesses still use this platform since it's such a stable, time tested Operating System. The bottom line is if you do use XP it's time to seriously consider upgrading to a newer Operating System like Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. Regards, Ritchie...
