If You Still Use Windows XP Then Protect Your System Using Avast Antivirus

Use Avast Antivirus to protect your Windows XP PC, as its support is nearly about to end on April 8 2014. Yes you heard it, Microsoft is now going to put the 13 years old OS to its end. After 8 April 2014, there will be no support for Windows XP. After April 8 2014, Microsoft will not provide any security patches for Windows XP, and this will make the operating system more vulnerable to attacks ever than before. What’s more bad news is a huge part of the internet users are still using Windows XP.

According to sources Windows XP users are likely to get attacked 6 times more than Windows 7 users. As there won't be any updates for security patches for Windows XP, so this makes the OS an easy target for hackers to attack. They can extract out important information from your Windows XP running system.

Now it’ll become easy for hackers and cybercriminals to find loop holes of Windows XP security, which obviously they'll be using to attack and break into your PC. And once they’ll know the vulnerabilities of Windows XP, they might use this knowledge to attack other PC and laptops that are running on non-Windows XP OS.

Remedies to protect system running Windows XP:

Obviously Microsoft will want you to upgrade your OS to newer versions. However if you still want to use the same old Windows XP (because you're too used to it), then it is time to get your PC protected. There are hundreds of things that you can do. First thing that comes in mind is installing an antivirus and keep virus definition updated.

Avast Antivirus is a good option for an antivirus. It is one of the top antivirus software solutions available in the market. And the good thing is, even after April 8, it will still keep giving support on Windows XP. So if you have any issues related to Windows XP security, or have any queries about using Avast antivirus itself; you can reach Avast Antivirus Support.
