As many, if not most, Windows computer users are aware support for Windows XP is fast approaching – April 8th to be exact.
At this late stage one can only wonder what threats emerge for those customers still running Windows XP after April 8th?
We are very pleased that the majority of GJ’s Computer Services customers, particularly our SMB clients, have over the past couple of years updated their Windows machines to mainly Windows 7, but also Windows 8/8.1. Those that have not are planning to do so and are mainly home users.
Today Microsoft, in partnership with LapLink, announced a free data migration tool for Windows XP users, which will copy files & settings from the Windows XP Computer to a new device running Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. The tool called PCmover Express for Windows XP will be available for download later this week from http://gjscomp.com/1ktThdI.
Lastly, from March 8th Windows XP (Home & Professional) editions who receive Windows updates automatically will also start receiving notifications via the Screen Desktop informing them of the end of Windows XP Support on April 8th.
