    Basically Microsoft will no longer support XP and you are either left to trust 3rd party devs to keep the system updated. It is really up to you but the best suggestion, especially if you have older hardware is to get a new machine running W7 or W8. Linux is another choice if you are looking to hold off on spending money for now.

    What computer are you running, either the make/model or if it's home built (or other prebuilt) you would have to let us know the motherboard and the processor on it and you might be able to just upgrade that computer, doing a dual boot so you can keep XP.
