Everybody should note that Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (and of course all previous version) and Windows Vista (without any Service Pack) is now no longer supported by Microsoft. This means that they will no longer be producing security updates.
Given the prevalence of malware we would strongly suggest that everyone use a version of Windows that is currently supported by Microsoft and have Automatic Updates enabled.
To check which version of Windows you are running right click on My Computer (or “Computer” as it is now labelled in Windows Vista and Windows 7) and go to Properties.
If you are running a version that is now unsupported you can check the following Web Site on how to update to a supported version.
