    Despite early warnings, pleading and even financial lures to upgrade systems from the Windows XP operating system, many of our core services are still running on the soon to be retired system. It's not just our grandparents that stick stubbornly to Windows XP, which is due for an end-of-life and support retirement on April 8 this year. According to Symantec researchers, the banking industry is likely to be affected on this date, as 95 percent of our ATMs -- computer systems that control access to funds -- are still running on the archaic system.
