With only 10 days to go until the end of the financial year, now is the time to update your Windows XP computer to a new Windows 7 or 8.1 machine.
Since XP is now no longer supported by Microsoft, computers still using it are increasingly vulnerable to attack and we have seen this a lot recently. The combination of Windows XP and little or no antivirus protection is a serious risk to your data and opens the door to some particularly nasty viruses.
What to do:
- Don’t panic!
- Upgrade your PC to Windows 7 or 8.1 depending on your preference
- Install a commercial antivirus solution. Remember, you get what you pay for!
- Backup your data regularly
- Get your PC serviced regularly
