Support for Windows 8 will be shut down by
Microsoft on January 12. According to Microsoft, computers with Windows 8 may
continue to be sold only until June 2016. This means that this operating system
version will no longer receive new security updates.

Users who wish to continue to receive updates
should upgrade to Windows 8.1, which is available for download via the Windows
Store, until tomorrow. After day 12, the upgrade to Windows 8.1 will no longer
