On April 8, 2014, Microsoft ended technical support and security updates for the Windows XP Operating System and users with that system are no longer fully protected. It is very important that you are running a current Operating System that can receive regular security updates to protect your computer from malicious attacks involving viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

For more information, please visit the following URL from Microsoft. To visit the link, please copy and paste it into your web browser.

We strongly encourage you to utilize a current Operating System and to not conduct banking transactions on a Windows XP machine. If you are not sure if you are running Windows XP, you can hold down the Windows key (between Ctrl and Alt) and press R on your keyboard. Then type winver.exe and hit enter. A window will be displayed with the version of Windows that you are running. This can also be accomplished by clicking Start, then right-clicking My Computer, then selecting Properties.
