Microsoft recently announced they will be ending support of Windows XP® on April 8, 2014. Read the official Microsoft announcement at this link:
After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer create and/or distribute security patches and software updates for the Windows XP operating system. Regular security patches and software updates are essential tools that help minimize vulnerabilities to a range of security problems, including computer virus infections, malware and system exploits. Running unsupported software significantly increases the risk of becoming victim to serious computer security issues including loss of data, account takeover and identity theft.
What can you do?
It is important to upgrade your workstation to a supported operating system like Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8. You may also want to use a different computer for banking that is running a supported verison of Windows. After Microsoft ends support, Windows XP may be susceptible to malicious activity and exploits that a more recent version of Windows is immune to.
