Windows XP users – action you need to take!

You CAN continue using your Windows XP computer after 8th April – with the right support (which will continue  be available from PC GP – forever, because this is still the version of Windows I’m most familiar with!!)

Firstly, you should now check it is running Service Pack 3. The following screenshot shows how easy it is to check …

Checking XP Service Pack number - both

NOTE: Updating is usually straightforward, but you should ensure you have a backup of all your files FIRST (in case there’s a problem) with the PC – and read all the screens carefully.

If you have Service Pack 3, you should check you have all the other “Important” updates, because they may be withdrawn soon.

ALSO:- You should use Firefox or Chrome to surf the internet, not Internet Explorer anymore. You can import your IE favourites into either program easily.
