Am I Running XP?

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips

With the end of official support for XP on April 8, Microsoft is pushing hard for everyone to upgrade. If you aren’t sure whether or not you’re running the XP operating system, Microsoft has made it easy.  Click here to visit  If you’re running XP, you’ll see this.

You can then scroll down for a countdown clock and a link to learn more about upgrading to a newer version of Windows. There are also buttons to share via social media. So if you have friends who aren’t so tech-savvy, it’s a great way for them to quickly check their operating system.

    windows 8.1 is nothing more than microsofts making a buck at the expence of customers of computer products. This reminds me of big blue (ibm) and microsofts beginning. Our elected officials should be looking at them as a monopoly as europe did with acad.
