Countdown clock marks end of Microsoft's XP Anti-Malware support
With less than a year to go until Microsoft stops providing anti-malware support updates, 10ZiG has launched a countdown timer to track how long XP users have to upgrade or face being left somewhat exposed.

Microsoft will end its support for the aging operating system on July 15th, 2015, so if you’re still on XP, it’s time to start thinking about upgrading. You may think that only a handful of people are still using XP, but you’d be surprised.

A survey by antivirus firm Bitdefender in June found that 18% of small and medium-sized businesses surveyed are still using Windows XP. More than 5,000 global companies were surveyed and it was discovered that 53.4% still run Windows 7 Professional, while the rest used a mix of Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Ultimate, and Windows 8.1 Pro.

Meanwhile, the Irish government missed its deadline to upgrade from Windows XP in February and had to pay Microsoft to ensure that it could still get emergency IT support.

Make sure you don’t get left in the lurch. Keep an eye on the countdown timer and make sure you upgrade in time.
