After Windows XP

After XPWindows XP Support ended April 8, 2014

What does this mean? Will my Windows XP computer still work after April 8th?

If you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer should still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. New vulnerabilities will be discovered for Windows XP placing your computer and your data at increasing risk.  As they are continued and as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimize for more recent versions of Windows, a greater number of programs and devices like cameras and printers will no longer work with Windows XP.*

Can I upgrade the operating system on my existing computer?

Sometimes a Windows XP machine can be upgraded to Windows 7 or 8.  But, as Windows has evolved it has become more complex and requires more resources on your machine than Windows XP did. Your machine will need to be evaluated to determine if Windows 7 or 8 will run efficiently. While you could run Windows XP with a single core processor and 512MB of ram, a dual core processor and 2 GB of Ram are recommended as the minimum for Windows 7 or 8. A new computer may not be required if yours does not meet the minimums. It also may be possible to upgrade components so that your computer can run the newer operating systems.
