KEEP WINDOWS XP GOING

"Keep Windows XP going with some good advice and useful information about which browsers to be using and which browsers to ditch."

WINDOWS XP

"So you have decided to keep using Windows XP so here is some advice."

Windows XP is now unsupported

"Here are the facts, Windows XP is now unsupported and has been since April 2014. Microsoft will tell you that it's the end of the world and try to push you to upgrading to a newer version of Windows. If you have the money then feel free to upgrade to atleast Windows 7 but please avoid upgrading to Windows Vista because that will be unsupported in 2016. Microsoft doesn't care much for Windows Vista like they do for Windows XP because Windows Vista doesn't have the very large user base like Windows XP. If you have the money to upgrade then Windows 7 would make a good upgrade."

"Microsoft has stopped doing updates and patches for Windows XP SP3 in April 2014 and we feel that Microsoft has jumped the gun because Windows XP has many years and many millions of active users who don't want to or can't afford to upgrade from Windows XP. Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 is now unsupported with no updates there is no point using it."

Windows XP Internet Explorer 8

"Things you need to know about Windows XP Browsers, we will start don't use Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 because it has been unsupported since April 2014. There is nothing to download with Windows XP because there are no updates so you shouldn't be using Internet Explorer 8 at all."

Windows XP for Google Chrome is ending

"Google Chrome is a great browser for Windows XP but Google will end support for Google Chrome with Windows XP in April 2015 so don't use Google Chrome. Another browser which is unsupported with Windows XP and i think all Windows is Apple Safari so this is one to avoid."

Two powerful Window XP supported browsers

"Here is the good news, there are two powerful and supported browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Opera available for Windows XP."

"Mozilla have said that they will continue to support Firefox users still running Windows XP when they made the comment we have no plans to discontinue support for our loyal Windows XP users."

"Opera Software has no intention to stop support for Windows XP because Opera is used by millions of Windows XP users and they will keep supporting Windows XP as long as it is popular among our users."

Windows XP Firewall

"Windows XP Firewall which came part of Windows XP with Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3 is a reliable basic Firewall. Windows Firewall protects your computer by blocking communications that might actually be malicious software trying to find a way to connect to your computer. Windows Firewall does offer some protection from network attacks by malicious software known as worms. Avast also have a Firewall with Avast Pro Internet Security has Avast Anti Virus, Safezone, Sandbox, Firewall and Anti Spam."

"If you are still using Windows XP which then you should take a look at getting powerful anti virus such as Avast which is available for free. Avast has Free Anti Virus with no extras. Avast Pro has Avast Anti Virus, Safezone and Sandbox. Avast Pro Internet Security has Avast Anti Virus, Safezone, Sandbox, Firewall and Anti Spam. Avast Premier has Avast Anti Virus, Safezone, Sandbox, Firewall, Anti Spam, Automatic Software Updator, Access Anywhere and Data Shredder. Avast delivers everything you might need at different levels of Protection."

"Avast is devoted to protecting the PC ecosystem by not only supporting Windows XP for at least the next three years, but also by creating protection modules and detections specifically designed to cover Windows XP vulnerabilities and other security problems."

"WINDOWS XP COMPUTER GETTING UPDATES UNTIL 2019."

"First, open up Notepad by pressing Windows Key + R to open Run and type notepad to get a new Notepad window. Paste the following text:"

"Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00"

"[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\WPA\PosReady]"

"Installed"=dword:00000001"

"Save the file with CTRL + S name it whatever you like, but be sure that it ends in .reg to make it a Registry file. Double-click the new file and confirm adding it to the Registry."

"Now, you can restart the computer to re-enable automatic updates, or open the Start Menu and choose All Programs > Windows Update to check for updates on the web manually. You should find new updates waiting for you, despite XP not receiving any updates since 2014."

"WINDOWS XP COMPUTER GETTING UPDATES UNTIL 2019."

OPERATING SYSTEM

Conclusion

"You will have to make sure that you keep your anti virus updated and all software updated with the latest version. I know that Avast Anti Virus will be supported for Windows XP for the next 3 years and hopefully they will decide to extend that longer. It's good that Mozilla and Opera Software have said that their browsers will support Windows XP because of the large user base for both Firefox and Opera. It's clear now that Windows XP users are on their own from Microsoft so it's good that a few companies still support Windows XP and the millions of active users online and offline."
