The End of my Microsoft Windows XP Computer on April 8th

Update to my computer problem. First thank you for your advice and comments. I am looking into better virus protection and firewall software.  I also have a couple of leads for a used computer. I will keep you posted, Louise

Hi everyone,
Well it looks like I will be without a computer for awhile. After April 8th Microsoft will no longer support my Windows XP. Due to the limitations of my computer I can not switch to the newer version of Windows. In other words I need a new computer. Living without a cell phone has not been a problem because I am always home. After total frustration with the cable TV I let that go. This was one of the best things ever. With Netflix,Hulu etc I find everything I need. Doing without a computer is a whole other situation!! Like most people I rely on it for so much.  A new computer just does not fit into the budget right now.For now I will need to be patent and turn on the radio!

Much Love to all of you, Louise

Your computer will continue to work but you won't get updates. Microsoft is going to scare you a little. It's really ok. As long as you have a good virus protector and firewall software, you will be fine. Change your passwords often. Upgrade to a new computer when you can. Just to be safe, I would remove any credit card or bank info.

Don't understand why you cannot use windows XP, it should still work perfectly even without their support. Annette x
