I'm not sure which forum to post this in so I'll try here. As long as I have a current paid antivirus and fire wall on my old computer do I really need to worry about microsofts support service packs which end in April of this year. It's a backup machine and I only want to access the Internet with it on rare occasions. I do realize in the future new programs will not run on it, but that's the case with it now. I already have a hp with windows 8 (which I despise) laptop and a apple iPad to access information.
