Windows XP – The sad demise

Windows XP
As of March 2014, Windows XP will not be supported by Microsoft. This means that in the event of a corrupt download from an update, for example, Adobe Flash or Java, causing the computer to become unusable, then Microsoft will not supply any future patches to resolve the issue, as they do now. This means the pc will be unusable.
In short, if you are currently running a computer with Windows XP, you will need to start budgeting to change the machine by March. From this date, PC Repair Leeds, like most of our competitors, will cease to provide cover for Windows XP computers.
If you require any advise on purchasing a new or refurbished computer, please do not hesitate in contacting PC Repair Leeds.
Finally, Windows 8 is still causing problems. PC Repair Leeds have now found a piece of software to enable the start button again. For those of you who are wondering what I am waffling about, Windows 8 does not have a start button or a menu. Instead, you need to navigate through countless “tiles” to find a program or files. Needless to say, it has not proved popular with our business clients.
Please do not hesitate in contacting PC Repair Leeds if you have any queries on the retirement of our favourite operating system.
