1. Windows XP users warned of support ending with a pop-up.
2. Microsoft using pop-ups to warn Windows XP users to upgrade.
Hoax or Fact:
These are the pop up messages from Microsoft that Windows XP users have been reporting from past few days. The pop up is a notification warning the users that Windows XP support will end on 8th April 2014, and are thereby asked to upgrade. Yes, it is a fact.
Microsoft planned the pop-up warnings to notify users that Windows XP operating system support is ending on 8th April 2014 and to entice them to upgrade. The pop up notification includes a link to Microsoft’s Windows XP end of support website, where the user can find all the required information about the end of support for Windows XP, what it means, and how they can stay protected against security risks and viruses after April 8th. The pop up notification will reoccur on the 8th of every month unless disabled by the user.
The purpose of the pop up warning is to help the Windows XP users migrate to a modern operating system such as Windows 8.1. Furthermore, Microsoft has also come up with a migration tool called PCmover Express for Windows XP that copies your files and settings from your old Windows XP PC to a new device running Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.
