DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Next week, a major tech transition could put your personal information at risk. 

Microsoft will end support and upgrades for its Windows XP operating system, effectively retiring the workhorse of many PC-based systems.

One fourth of the world’s computers are using it – even your medical practitioners and banking ATMs.  So to protect yourself, ask questions and check your security updates. 

Find out if your financial institutions have industrial strength security. 

If you are running Windows XP on your personal computer, experts say you have to live with the risk or get an upgrade. A reminder, older computers may not have the technology to accommodate the new operating systems. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
