Support for Windows XP Ends April 8, 2014

What is Windows XP end of support?

Microsoft has provided support for Windows XP for the past 12 years, but that support is coming to an end on April 8, 2014. This means there will no longer be technical support for Windows XP, and PCs running XP will no longer receive software updates from Windows Update. These include security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. PCs running Windows XP after April 8, 2014, should not be considered to be protected.

Support for Office 2003 also ends on April 8, 2014.


What happens to PCs on Windows XP after April 8, 2014?

They will continue to work as normal and there will not be any kind of limitations imposed on the OS crippling its usage. But it’s the unknown that users should be concerned about. Microsoft has publicly stated that no new patches will be released for the OS after April 2014. Drivers for new hardware that comes out will not be available for XP. Users may begin to encounter compatibility issues. Using Windows XP after April 2014 will be an "at your own risk" situation.


How do I stay protected?

To stay protected after support ends, you can upgrade your current PC to a newer version of Windows. Windows 8 is the latest, but Windows 7 is a very capable and user-friendly operating system. Windows 7 also has a more traditional Windows user interface, as Windows 8 introduced many design changes.
