Windows XP officially killed off 8 April 2014

It's been 11 years since the Microsoft launched Windows XP. It's probably been the best most popular system to date.

However, all good things come to an end and with Windows Vista, 7 and now 8 released since Microsoft have decided to call it a day for XP from 8th April 2014. There will be some final updates to fix problems and security issues but after that there will be no more updates.

What does this mean if you still use XP? Well over time your system will be more prone to virus and security attacks. Your system will still work so it'll be even more important to keep your anti-virus up to date and perhaps consider installing a good anti-malware system. One I recommend is Malwarebytes Pro at It currently costs £20.94 for a lifetime license and will block all the stuff your anti-virus can't.

You could upgrade to a newer system. Vista is not recommend so it's either Windows 7 or 8. The next thing to consider is if your system can cope with the newer system.

Give us a call if you want any advice for upgrades, anti-virus etc.
