Question: I'm still using Microsoft Windows XP as my operating system. Can I keep using it after Microsoft ends its support in April 2014?
Answer: Support for Windows XP (and Office 2003) will end on April 8, 2014. After that date, Microsoft will no longer provide new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates.
You can continue to use Windows XP, but it's not recommended since your computer might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Microsoft strongly recommends you get current with Windows and Office.
