So what are your options?
Upgrade to Windows 7 or 8?
It is possible but you run a risk of hardware incompatibility and still having a slow system.
This is the easiest option since you don’t have to back up, reformat, migrate files, or set up a new hard drive partition.
(We will get into hard drive backups and encryption in a later post.)
You can still get the same functionality as your old Windows XP system but with much faster boot times!
