More than 5.7 million personal computers in Thailand are still at risk with just six months left before Microsoft ends support for Windows XP, according to the head of Microsoft Thailand’s Windows Client Business Group.

Microsoft reminds business users and consumers with PCs still running Windows XP that it will officially retire service and support for the operating system next April 8, said Rachod Isarankura Na Ayuthaya.

With half a year left to this crucial milestone, there are more than 5.7 million PCs in Thailand – or nearly three in every 10 computers – that are still running on Windows XP, an 11-year-old operating system no longer capable of handling sophisticated cyber-attacks and demands for more data privacy and productivity, he said.

StatCounter figures for last month show that the Kingdom has one of the highest Windows XP installed bases in the Asia-Pacific region, at about 28 per cent of all PCs in the country. That is equivalent to an “alarming” figure of 5.7 million computers, which is higher than the population of Singapore, he said.
