Whether people are upgrading the operating system or moving to a new PC, Laplink has the right tool for the job, making it fast, easy, and leaving nothing behind.

Laplink Software, Inc. today announced an added benefit for Windows XP users who are upgrading their existing PCs. PCmover Windows Upgrade Assistant is the only way to perform a complete upgrade of existing hardware from Windows XP to Windows 7, 8, or 8.1. And now, it includes Free Transfer Assistance, providing access to a certified migration expert who will guide the user through the entire upgrade process at no additional cost.

PCmover Windows Upgrade Assistant supports complete upgrades of existing hardware from Windows XP to Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. There’s no need to transfer data to external storage and no need to reinstall applications. PCmover does it all automatically! And now, with expert help from certified migration specialists included at no additional charge, it’s easy for anyone to do the upgrade.

Microsoft ends support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. This means Windows XP users will see an end to security updates, hot-fixes, and technical assistance. While Microsoft has extended updates to its antimalware software for Windows XP until 2015, that does not eliminate the risk of continuing to use Windows XP after April 8.

“Windows XP users have three options come April 8,” said Thomas Koll, Laplink’s CEO. “They can remain on Windows XP, exposing their data to malware, viruses, and hackers. That’s a bad scenario. They can move off of XP by upgrading their operating system to a newer version of Windows or they can replace their outdated PC with a new PC. Whether people are upgrading the operating system or moving to a new PC, Laplink has the right tool for the job, making it fast, easy, and leaving nothing behind.”

Upgrading to a new version of Windows is easy with PCmover Windows Upgrade Assistant, regardless of technical skill, thanks to Free Transfer Assistance. Available any time, any day, Free Transfer Assistance allows a user to call a certified migration expert to walk through the entire upgrade process. Users will not only have their files, settings, and applications transferred, they can also get expert help setting up printers, wireless internet, and more—all for less than $30.
