Stay Protected after Windows XP Support Ends
Is my Windows XP computer still protected after Microsoft stops supporting it?
On Tuesday April 8th 2014 Microsoft officially discontinued technical support services and security updates for the Windows XP operating system. There is still a vast majority of people running Windows XP. Everybody is concerned in regards to system security and being protected from malware and viruses.
When it was first released in 2001, Windows XP was a big step forward for every user running previous version of Windows. However, as time passed by, Windows XP became the target of many viruses and hacker attacks. Moreover, without technical support and security patch releases, Windows XP will become even more vulnerable against security threats. Many people will be left to struggle with vulnerability issues which may lead computer infections and data hijacking. The best option would be to upgrade to a newer Windows version like Windows 7 or Windows 8. Although, this solution may work for some but may not work for others. It is crucial for everybody that wants to keep using Windows XP, to make sure that has an up-to-date anti-virus and anti-malware solution running in order to remain protected.
SpyHunter will automatically scan and detect all threats present on your system.
