End of Support for IE on Windows XP
The support and hot fixes for Internet Explorer on Windows XP ends on April 8, 2014. The obvious question is - what happens next?
Does downloading another browser fix the problem? I don't know what to do. Microsoft says computers will be vulnerable to viruses that the patches protect against.
Microsoft suggests a newer computer. I've updated IE as much as my machine allows. It is 5 or 6 years old; but, I still have at least 50% of the hard drive available, if not more. I don't feel I have any need for a new computer.
I'm nearly 70 and only use the computer as a social outlet. Don't do any banking or things like that. I shop a bit online and go to a few forums and craft groups. Nothing critical. I'm the only person who uses this machine.
I do have virus protection and keep it updated. Any suggestions as to what to do before the April deadline?
