Windows XP Isn’t Dead!
Not by a long shot!
In 2010, nearly 10 years after its initial release, Windows XP was being used by over half of the visitors to Ask Leo!.
That’s over 9,000,000 visitors running XP.
In early 2011, Windows XP is estimated to remain above 50% market share.
That means that XP is in use on more computers than every other operating system … combined!
No, XP’s not dead. Not by a long shot.
Make Windows XP Last
As you can see, if you’re running Windows XP, you’re not alone. Microsoft’s venerable operating system remains one of the most popular on the planet.
Heck, if you’ve got an older machine that’s not up to handling more recent versions of Windows, XP might well be your only option.
And that’s not a bad thing!
But there’s often a problem…
After running Windows XP for several years, I’ll bet your machine is slooooow. Slow to start up, slow to shut down, and just generally slow to use. Slower than it was when you first got it…
Guess what? Once again, you’re not alone!
And that’s exactly what Maintaining Windows XP – A Practical Guide is going to help you fix.
Don’t let software shorten the life of your hardware.
One of the most frustrating scenarios I see is when people spend money – good money that they could be using for something else – to buy a new machine.
When they didn’t have to!!
This goes beyond the extreme “do I need to get a new machine because I have a virus?” kind of thinking (it’s a common question, and the answer of course is no). This is a more common and slightly more acceptable assumption:
My machine’s slowing down.
Must be time for a new one.
Not nearly as often as you might think.
More often than not, the hardware’s not the problem.
It’s the software, silly!
And software can often be fixed. I’ll show you how.
If it ain’t broke, don’t toss it.
It hurts me to see good computers get tossed aside when in all likelihood it doesn’t have to be that way.
In many cases, people are just throwing their hands up in resignation and starting over.
One: you can do that without spending money on a new machine.
Two: you probably don’t have to do that at all.
And that is what Maintaining Windows XP – A Practical Guide is all about: the steps you can take without buying a new machine and without installing a new operating system. Steps that’ll help make your machine more reliable, more efficient and more useful.
Steps that’ll help your machine last longer.
“Your book was well worth the price and my time invested in following your recommendations.”
Don’t upgrade – “regrade”.
Every so often out in rural country, the roads will get re-graded – the old bumpy, noisy road surface will get smoothed out. Perhaps a few potholes will get filled in, new road materials might be laid down as needed. The overall quality of the road will be restored to something closer to its original condition.
Same road, only smoother.
That’s all your Windows XP computer might need.
Remove a few potholes, smooth out the ride, and you’ll be driving along at speeds you only remembered.
A clean machine is a faster machine.
And that’s what Maintaining Windows XP – A Practical Guide will help you do – clean your Windows XP machine to get rid of the potholes.
Running out of disk space? I’ll look at how you can figure out what to toss and what to keep, and different ways to make more room.

Window’s XP’s days are numbered, there’s no doubt about it. Support ends in April of 2014, and Microsoft’s own anti-malware tools will stop being updated roughly a year after that.
But I also hear from a lot of people who want to keep using Windows XP as long as is possible.
Well, guess what? That’s exactly why Maintaining Windows XP – A Practical Guide was originally written!
