How excited I was when we got a new computer. My Granddad used to own a Windows 3.1 computer which I was fascinated with. Then we got a new computer with Windows XP on (in 2001), and I could not wait to give it a try.
Ahh Windows XP my old friend. I am so sorry but it is time to say goodbye. But first, one last memory…
The blue sky and green rolling hills along with this new fangled “Start Menu” thing all added to something none of us had ever seen before. A nice looking user interface…

But as with Windows 3.1 (and soon Windows Vista. Support for Vista will end in April 2017), it is now time to say goodbye to Windows XP.

Time to say goodbye

Here are my top 3 reasons we should help friends and family move away from XP (or at the very least disconnect it from the internet)

  1. No amount of virus scanners / firewalls can keep Windows XP Safe online…
  2. …Because it has not had security updates for 2 years. This can mean that attackers could be using your XP machine without you or the virus scanner knowing.
  3. Many programs and even websites (including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, some banking websites and one you may have heard of pcinnercircle.co.uk) do not work or are not updated on XP.

If you have friends or family members still using XP you can help spread the word, and as you are an Inner Circle member we can help you help them to move away from XP.

Goodbye XP TV Advert

This is the best advert I have seen for a long time. I have no idea what they are saying, but still, I really enjoyed it.

Stay safe
