Windows XP support ended
Microsoft stopped supporting its XP Operating System on 8 April meaning that there will no longer be updates.
This will leave XP computers more open to viruses, spyware and other malicious software. They will also not receive updates to improve reliability and support new devices.
XP users are recommended to update to at least Windows 7 which will be supported until 2020. Until this is done it is more important than ever to ensure that security an anti-virus software is kept completely up to date.
