I have a desktop computer that is around ten years old that is currently not connected to the internet that runs Windows XP.  If I have an up to date anti virus program and an up to date firewall on my router, does anyone know if it will still be safe to use that computer on Exede even though Microsoft discontinued support for Windows XP last year?

Hello Bryan,

Windows XP will work fine with our service. Microsoft just doesn't support the browser anymore.

Although most websites complain that you have an old Internet Explorer (v 8) browser you can use other browsers - Google Chrome is an up to date and modern browser that you can use with your Windows XP.
