Tech Tip: Support for Windows XP Ends Today

A new article has been posted to the TAM Retail blog by Sarah Wilson:


We would like to remind you that support for Windows XP will end today.  If you are still using Windows XP, it is time to consider upgrading to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. This may also be the perfect time to consider upgrading your hardware;  it will be difficult to run newer operating systems on older machines.

Updating your software and hardware is crucial for keeping your information safe from harmful viruses and spyware.  When support for Windows XP ends, anti-virus software will no longer be able to completely protect you, and if a problem were to occur, it would be difficult to address or even resolve it.  Upgrading is an essential step to ensure that your business’s information will not become vulnerable to malicious attacks.

As always, if you have any concerns or questions you would like addressed, feel free to contact us.  We can be reached by phone at 866-435-7826 or by email at help@tamretail.com.
