I get caught up in jargon.

In a nutshell UAC is a feature in Vista and 7 whereby everything you or the 'puter does is greeted with a 'are you sure you want to do that' ?

It really gets in the way and is best turned off as it can silently block all sorts of things.

Hi, I am not a computer buff by a long chalk, but what is going to happen to Windows XP after April ???? I love mine, and can do anything on it, my computer is slow, and old, but hanging in there, just has a few things that I would like to iron out, example :- if I get an email with an Url, or a Utube video,or anything that I have to click onto, my computer freezes, and I have to CTRL, ALT, and delete to end task, paper clips are OK, any idea's ??????

My guess is you will be able to carry on for quite some time.

You can still use XP. I would suggest you get a good, paid for, anti-virus package (Kaspersky, BitDefender, Norton) to help fill the future void as Microsoft will not be issuing any more 'patch Tuesday' updates.

The hackers will know this and I reckon will concentrate on XP for scams, etc.

The most recent pie chart I saw showed that there is still almost 30% still using XP including some high profile companies.
