This is just meant to be some helpful advise to anyone out there still using an older windows xp computer. As windows xp comes to a close in April of this year 2014 there will be no more support. The possibility of no updates for security means that you may run the risk of being infected. There will be no protection for any loop holes that someone may find. The virus community is worried that the people who write the viruses may target the xp operating system.
The best choice is to save your data and go into a new computer running windows 7 or possibly windows 8 or 8.1. My advise is to try and go with a windows 7 operating system. It will be supported into the year 2020 which will give time for windows 8 and 8.1 to get the bugs out. The windows 8 and 8.1 are very different from windows xp and windows 7 so it may be an easier move. The only other problem that may occur is if your older software will function in the newer operating systems.
Thank You for reading and Have A Nice Day.
