8th April 2014 – The end of Windows XP

8th April 2014 – The end of Windows XP

Windows XP Support is ending.

On 8th April 2014, support and updates for Windows XP will no longer be available from Microsoft. Don’t let your PC go unprotected.

What is Windows XP end of support?

Microsoft has provided support for Windows XP for the past 12 years. But now the time has come for them to invest resources towards supporting more recent technologies in order to deliver great new experiences.

As a result, after 8th April 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available from Microsoft, including automatic updates that help protect your PC.

If you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimise for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter greater numbers of apps and devices that do not work with Windows XP.
