Branford, CT (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Microsoft has announced that after April 8, 2014, it will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Windows XP. This has huge implications for the large number of users that still rely on Windows XP. Although XP is more than 12 years old, it still runs on 39% of computers currently in use, with close to 500 million worldwide users. Without updates and security patches, Windows XP computers are likely to be increasingly vulnerable to virus and malware infections.
GuruAid’s new service offering is aimed at helping this global Windows XP user base. With GuruAid’s Windows XP Life Extender Service Line, for an annual support fee of $169, customers will get:
- Dedicated help-desk of professionals trained specifically on Windows XP operating system and the security issues.
- Quarterly check of the Windows XP computer to ensure that its performance is optimized and security holes are plugged
- Help and guidance in upgrading Windows XP to Microsoft’s Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating systems
"Windows XP is a battle hardened, stable operating system and one that users have overtime gotten to like. Also the large base of Windows XP applications, makes it hard for many business and consumers to migrate immediately to Microsoft's newer operating system," says Nikhil Kothari co-founder of GuruAid. "Our new Windows XP Life Extender Service line is aimed at helping this customer segment preserve their investment in computer hardware and software.”
