Windows XP – Microsoft Ending Support

Posted on January 28th, 2014

We have a very important announcement to those of you who use Windows XP on your computer.

For those of you who may not have heard, Microsoft Windows XP will soon come to EOL (End of Life) and Microsoft Windows XP support will also stop from Microsoft. This basically means that if your computer is running the Microsoft Windows XP operating system, it will no longer be supported by Microsoft as of April 8th 2014!

In reality, this means that any newly released software is no longer guaranteed to work on your computer. Also after the April 8 2014, there will be NO Microsoft Updates for your computer, leaving your machine more vulnerable and open to infection. It also means that Microsoft will no longer fix bugs and other security problems with the operating system on your computer which means your system will be much more susceptible to viruses and spyware. You will no longer be able to buy a new off the shelf printer or software and expect it to work automatically. Many other newer hardware and software items will no longer work.
It is our recommendation that you seriously consider purchasing a replacement machine, sooner rather than later! As authorised Microsoft Refurbishers, we can supply you with a refurbished computer with Windows 7 installed or a brand new computer.
We can also help you transfer your data (documents, pictures, music) from your current computer to a replacement machine and set it up for you.

If you have any questions or would like to have a chat about a replacing your current computer, please feel free to call me on 01228 576090 or you can email support@cumbriacomputerrepairs.co.uk.
