Users are delaying due to cost and because they don’t know how to migrate years of personal data. Laplink is solving both issues ... and we’re giving it away at no cost.

Laplink Software, Inc. announced today that they will be giving away PCmover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant (limit one per customer) for 24 hours on February 4, 2014.

Windows XP end-of-life is coming April 8, 2014. And although Microsoft and other security vendors will continue to provide updates to antimalware tools, Windows XP itself will not be updated even if there are known vulnerabilities discovered after April 8. That means it is almost certain there will be attacks on end users that security software cannot prevent. As a leading security firm, AV Test, put it:

“(P)rogrammers (will) start to produce special exploits for Windows XP vulnerabilities” and “the best security suites will not be able to repair these weaknesses, which until now have been patched up by the approximately 100 updates released by Microsoft every year.”

“Windows XP users need to take this seriously,” urged Thomas Koll, Laplink’s CEO. “Users are delaying due to cost and because they don’t know how to migrate years of personal data. Laplink is solving both issues – because PCmover will eliminate the hassle by automatically migrating selected files, applications, and settings and we’re giving it away at no charge on February 4th.”

PCmover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant eliminates the hassle of upgrading to Windows 7 by automatically transferring all selected files, personalized settings, and even applications to the new operating system without overwriting anything. PCmover is the only solution for those looking to move out of Windows XP without spending days manually transferring everything and is incredibly simple to use. The step-by-step wizard guides users through installation and begins the transfer, allowing the user to continue daily tasks while their data is moved automatically.

For those who need a little extra help, Laplink offers all PCmover customers Free Transfer Assistance, a service that provides access to a professional technician who will remotely guide the user through the entire process at no cost.

“Businesses are generally moving to Windows 7,” added Koll. “But whether moving to Windows 7 or Windows 8, PCmover takes the hassle out of the process. Not only are files and settings migrated, but there’s no need to find old CDs or serial numbers, and there’s no need to reinstall applications. So long as the old programs are compatible with the new operating system, PCmover will migrate the applications to the new operating system, installed and ready to use.”
