On April 8, 2014 Microsoft will stop releasing security updates and bug fixes Windows XP. If you still have any computers running XP, you should switch to a supported operating system before then.

Compare your computer's specs with Microsoft's minimum system requirements for installing Windows 7. If your computer meets these minimums, you should upgrade your operating system. If not, consider replacing that computer.
If you are unable to switch, for example because you have a critical application that will only run on XP, please take the following steps:
