Microsoft ends Windows XP support on April 8th 2014. This means there are no new security updates for this system. If you are still using Windows XP you are adviced to upgrade to a new system. Fanic can assist you with this.

Microsoft explains on the website what the concequences are:

DIt means you should take action. After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Windows XP. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware and help keep users and their data safer. PCs running Windows XP after April 8, 2014, should not be considered to be protected, and it is important that you migrate to a current supported operating system – such as Windows 8.1 – so you can receive regular security updates to protect their computer from malicious attacks.

Banks advice to upgrade to a new operating system too! This is mainly in regard to internet banking. In case something goes wrong during the internet banking process the bank won't accept liability if the client is using unsecure systems.

Most of the clients of Fanic have upgraded to Windows 7. We noticed that Windows 8(.1) is not always interesting cause it is a major difference with the current versions.
