Windows XP was first released 24th August 2001 and has no longer been supported by Microsoft since 8th April 2014.
What does this mean?
It means should you take action. Microsoft no longer provides security updates or technical support for Windows XP. Security updates and patch vulnerabilities from Microsoft will have stopped and therefore PCs may be exploited by malicious software. Upgrading will help keep users and their data safer. PCs running Windows XP are no longer considered to be protected.
How do I upgrade?
Any computer which is old enough to have been purchased with Windows XP should now be considered due for an upgrade. Currently Windows 10 is the latest Microsoft operating system. We can recommend purchasing a new computer and copying old files from one PC to the other. Older software, such as Outlook Express, are no longer included in Windows 10. You may be able to find alternative software for what you are hoping to achieve. For any assistance, please feel free to contact us.

Of course you can! All of your emails in your inbox, sent items and any other folder can be transferred over. In addition, email contacts can also be transferred from Outlook Express to a new email system on a newer computer!
Can I transfer all of my documents, photos and favorites?
You can transfer it all onto any later operating system! For any assistance, please feel free to contact us.
