Are you still using Windows XP with Service Pack 2? If so, you'll want to take note of Microsoft's warning that it will terminate support of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) on July 13th, 2010.
According to a recent PC Advisor poll, 37 per cent of respondents are still using Windows XP. Of that number, 15 per cent of those users still have not yet upgraded to Windows XP Service Pack 3. (Source: pcadvisor.co.uk)
Windows XP users who have not yet upgraded to Service Pack 3 will need to do so before July 13th, 2010 in order to continue receiving Microsoft's latest security updates. Without the latest security updates, PCs are vulnerable to security exploits, including hackers, worms, and viruses. (Source: itbusinessedge.com)
XP SP2 Cut-Off Date Could be Costly For Some
Some businesses continue to use Windows XP with Service Pack 2 for hardware and software compatibility reasons. While some firms are considering the leap from XP SP2 directly to Windows 7, it may prove to be costly. For example, older hardware may not be capable of Windows 7; furthermore, the upgrade may not be worth the cost in terms of compatibility with existing software programs, even though Windows 7 offers vastly improved security protection.
