Windows XP - End of Life Issues
The world doesn't come to an end April 8th.
No concerns about continued XP use if:
If you don't connect to the internet with the machine
If you connect to the internet on that machine and it's XP:
Follow good security guidelines:
Use Firefox for browsing the web.
Use IE ****ONLY**** for trusted sites (banking, special sites for specific business use etc.)
Microsoft Security Essentials is no longer being updated by Microsoft. Switch to another Antivirus when that occurs (Avast works well)
What you can do to extend XP life:
Run as a limited user Profile (not administrator locally)
If in doubt, upgrade to Windows 7/Windows 8.1
Call if you have questions. (770) 778-1672
