Next year one week before income tax is due in the US, Microsoft ENDS support for Windows XP effectively putting older PC’s running XP in “use at your own risk” mode.

Folks can still use XP but it’s over a decade behind newer operating systems leaving it more vulnerable for security holes, viruses, etc.  Also new hardware or software like Quickbooks 2015, etc *may* not run on XP because vendors that make software or hardware for Microsoft no longer need worry about XP compatibility.

Delson Computer recommends upgrading unless there’s a significantly compelling reason to stay on Windows XP.  Contact us at or 843.276.6551 for questions or visit our website at
