Microsoft has posted: New Windows XP data transfer tool and end of support notifications

I just read, on Microsoft’s Windows Blog, that they are providing a free copy of LapLink’s PCmover Express to users of Windows XP that need to move their stuff to a new Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 computer. This utility (supposedly, cause I haven’t actually used it…yet,) will transfer music, videos, pictures, documents, settings, and all other things associated with your user profile to a new Windows computer.

Also, one of Windows XP’s future updates will include a count-down pop-up notice to remind you of how much time is left before support is dropped for your operating system. Basically, it’s nagWare, but with a genuine purpose.Check the links bellow for more info.

Thanks, tech on, I’ll see you on Tuesday!
