Chinese Windows XP Users To Get Security Support After April 8


Microsoft is partnering with China's leading Internet security vendors ontinue offering security support for the OS to users in the nation after the official retirement of the Windows XP operating system by April 8.

A Microsoft Chinese official said in a statement on Sunday that Chinese Internet security companies including Tencent, will continue to provide services to Chinese Windows XP users.

Microsoft added that 70 percent of China's XP users haven't ever patched their systems with Windows Update in the past 13 years.

Windows XP OS is found on nearly 60 percent of the systems which connect to the internet in China.

And as the end of support for Windows XP on April 8th nears Microsoft is trying to convince users to migrate to a modern operating system such as Windows 8.1.

The company will be offering a free transfer tool that will be available beginning this month. The data migration tool called PCmover Express copies your files and settings from your Windows XP PC to a new device running Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. This tool will copy your files, music, videos, email and user profiles and settings from your old PC to your new device, transferring across your home or work network, and even enables Windows XP users to customize exactly what they want to bring over to their new device.

PCmover Express will be available for download in English starting later this week via WindowsXP.com as well as French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish coming later in March and it will be available in Korean, Chinese, Russian and Brazilian Portuguese after that.

On March 8th, 2014, Microsoft will also send Windows XP users (Home or Professional editions) who have elected to receive updates via Windows Update an official notification on their desktop screen via Windows Update informing them that support for Windows XP will end on April 8th, 2014.



The notification will include a link to Microsoft's Windows XP End of Support website. Microsoft said the notification would reoccur on the 8th of every month unless disabled by the user.
