Windows XP going no support

Recommended Posts

Windows XP:  Please be aware that Microsoft will terminate support of Windows XP/SP3 on April 8, 2014
That means it will no longer have updates and patches to prevent PC infections.

Once support is withdrawn by Microsoft, it will be impossible to secure the XP machine. It won't matter how many firewalls, anti-virus scanners, or other security programs are installed.
Any XP machine that is online after that date will get infected repeatedly, and any useful information on it will likely be stolen. It will NOT be fixable.

Expected would be cases of Financial / ID theft and Blackmail using Trojans and Keyloggers to intercept private information.
Criminals are reportedly making extra preparations for the date.
