Here are the top reasons you should upgrade your Windows XP computers:

Why should I upgrade? First and foremost, this is a security issue. Windows XP-based machines will still work after tomorrow, but Microsoft will no longer roll out security updates for the OS. That means your computer will be more susceptible to hackers and other scammers, who could exploit bugs that Microsoft is no longer fixing to gain access to your machine and steal your personal information.

Are there any exceptions? Amidst some backlash, Microsoft in February officially extended Microsoft Security Essentials updates for Windows XP users through July 2015. “For enterprise customers, this applies to System Center Endpoint Protection, Forefront Client Security, Forefront Endpoint Protection and Windows Intune running on Windows XP,” Microsoft said. “For consumers, this applies to Microsoft Security Essentials.” Still, Redmond cautioned that anti-malware solutions on outdated operating systems are limited. Some anti-virus providers will extend support for XP users, but not all.

How old is your computer hardware? Windows XP came out over 10 years ago. I am sure by now your computer is running slow. Instead of wasting productive time waiting for things to happen while you are running a business think about how much faster your computer would run with new computer hardware. Google calculates that 47% of the US business are still running Windows XP. You can even donate your old XP  computers in the Baltimore area to a Non-Profit organization called the Buddy Project at:
