Microsoft has provided support for Windows XP for the past 12 years. In an effort to deliver great new technology, Microsoft and its hardware and software partners are investing their resources towards supporting more recent technologies.
As a result, after April 8, 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC. Microsoft will also stop providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP on this date.

In 2013, two million Facebook, Gmail, and Twitter passwords were stolen in a massive hack. Hopefully you were not one of the two million that received an email from these companies requesting that you change your password.
In December 2013, the card data of at least 70 million Target customers was stolen and compromised.
Mega-businesses take extreme precautions to protect your privacy, but these systems are not infallible.
For small and home business owners, creating an affordable security plan is also an important part of your annual operations. We recommend a simple, four-prong approach for our small business customers.
- FIREWALL. A firewall is a barrier to keep distructive software away from your network by filtering information coming through your Internet connection. Flagged information will be caught by filters that have been programmed into the firewall.
- SPAM Filtering Service. A SPAM filter is a program that detects unsolicited and unwanted email, and assists in preventing those messages from making it to a user’s email account.
- ANTIVIRUS Software. Antivirus is a computer software used to assist in preventing, detecting, and removing malicious computer viruses. It isn’t enough just to have the antivirus on your devices — it is also important to keep this software updated with the latest definitions, since new threats are presented constantly.
- PASSWORDS. Create strong passwords — and create different passwords for each login you require — and make a plan to change those passwords at least every 3 or 4 months.
