Stuck with Windows XP?

Do you have indispensable programs or applications that only run on Windows XP?
That’s no fun. After April the 8th, 2014 Microsoft will end support for Windows XP. Automatic updates that help protect your PC will no longer be available. No more patches. Here’s a strategy: Buy a new hard drive for your computer. Install Windows XP on the new hard drive and run Windows update to download and install all updates. Store the new hard drive in a safe place. In case that your computer malfunctions and you find yourself in need of performing a clean install; you can always connect your spare hard drive and off you go.
