Microsoft Support for Windows XP Ended April 8, 2014

Microsoft states: After April 8, 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC.
While it's true that you can keep using your PC with Windows XP after support ends, we don't recommend it. For starters, it'll become five times more vulnerable to security risks and viruses, which means you could get hacked and have your personal information stolen.

If you are still using Windows XP, you should seriously consider upgrading your version of Windows or replace the computer with one that includes Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10.
Windows 8 can be upgraded to Windows 8.1 for free.
Windows 7 and 8.x can be upgraded to Windows 10 for free until July 29, 2016.

See the Windows 8.x and Windows 10 sections of this site for more information, tips, etc.
