Windows XP was released back in August 2001. If you are still using Windows XP almost 12 years later, are you preparing for April 8, 2014 when Windows XP reaches end-of-life? In about 10 months from now, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates, support, patches, etc. for Windows XP, leaving your very old Windows installation exposed and vulnerable.
Microsoft actually ended mainstream support for Windows XP back in 2009, and has been providing extended “life-support” ever since, simply because so many computers are still running it. If you haven’t upgraded to Windows 7 or 8 yet, we highly recommend that you do so very soon. All future updates and releases from Pecunia Systems will not be supporting Windows XP.
