Microsoft recently came out with the announcement that it will no longer be providing any support to users having Microsoft XP installed on their systems. This officially marks the end (post April 8th, 2014) of Microsoft XP’s run.
Statistics say that up to 30% of the world’s personal computers (PC’s) are still using the highly popular Windows XP. This is quite a serious figure, which of course means it cannot be ignored.
Microsoft has been pretty busy with encouraging the current Windows XP users to upgrade to the latest version of Windows OS, by pushing the security and safety aspect.
However, there are going to be a lot of users who just won’t or can’t upgrade to the latest version (system limitations for example) and will continue to run the 13 year old Windows XP. This will lead to a major vulnerability for these users, and will lead to security breaches if left unattended.
In this article, we’ll have a look at how you can keep you Windows XP safe from external threats and reduce the chances of being infiltrated by malicious hackers/coders.
