Windows XP

Just a reminder: Microsoft has now stopped all updates and support for Windows XP. It will still work, but will be vulnerable to security hacks and threats to the operating system. It is possible that your security will not detect these threats. The wisest thing to do is now upgrade to Windows 7 or 8. We can supply new computers and laptops with either Windows 7 or 8 on.
