Windows XP support has ended

Windows will no longer issue new security updates, hotfixes, free or paid support options or updates to online technical content for Windows XP users. Your PC will continue to work as normal, but it may become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.

Stay protected after Windows XP support ends

To keep your digital world secure after XP support ends you have two options: update your current PC or buy a new one.

Upgrade your current PC

Buy Windows 8.1 for your current PC. Windows 8.1 introduces Live Tiles, apps and more interactive personal computing, however older PCs may not be able to run it. Visit the Windows website and download the Windows Upgrade Assistant (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/end-support-help ) to check if your PC meets the system requirements for Windows 8.1.

Get a new PC

If you can’t run Windows 8.1 on your current PC it might be a good time to think about buying a new one. New PCs are faster, lighter and come with more storage and battery life. Plus, they are perfectly designed to get the most out of Windows 8.
