DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – After Tuesday  April 8, 2014, support and security updates for Microsoft Windows XP will no longer be available.

According to Microsoft, if you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer should still work, but it will become five times more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.
