Dead End signpost

Windows XP alert

While the move doesn’t mean your Windows XP computer will no longer work. It does mean that – eventually – applications such as Microsoft Office, Sage Accounts, Sage Payroll and QuickBooks will no longer be supported on Windows XP.

Most software manufacturers are supporting their current versions. Though Sage has announced that it will no longer support any updates after 8 April on Windows XP.

Though anti-virus software vendors currently continue to support Windows XP. We predict that they will also drop their support as new versions are released – leaving XP users vulnerable to viruses.
