Microsoft is offering Windows XP customers a free upgrade to Windows 7.1.1 for their PCs

Microsoft is extending its offer of Windows XP for free for those who purchased it prior to July 1, a move it said would help it better serve customers who were unable to upgrade to the new operating system.

The new Windows 7 for Windows XP free upgrade is available for PC owners who purchased Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Ultimate, Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Home Premium or later versions.

The upgrade will also be available to those who bought Windows XP on or after July 1.

Microsoft said customers can also receive the free upgrade by clicking here.

Microsoft said it was doing this because of the widespread nature of the virus that has infected over 300 million computers worldwide.

The virus, known as WannaCry, has infected systems in more than 40 countries, including Germany, France, Britain, Spain, Italy, Japan, South Korea and Australia.

Microsoft’s announcement was accompanied by a warning from the American Medical Association, which said it had detected an increasing number of infections in the U.S. in the past two months.

“It’s clear that many people don’t realize that they have a virus.

They’re not infected by the virus, they’re infected by their own behavior,” AMA President Jeffrey B. Sachs said in a statement.”

We encourage you to make a plan to get rid of this infection.

It’s very simple.

You can take it on, and you can make it disappear.”

Microsoft’s Windows 7 upgrade is free to new and existing customers, but users who have purchased Windows 7 before July 1 will pay $19.99 per month for the upgrade.

The Windows XP upgrade is not available to new or existing customers who purchased the operating system before July 10, 2015.

The software giant said that for those with more than five computers, Windows 7 and Windows XP are no longer free upgrades.

The company said the Windows 7 Upgrade Program offers free upgrades to customers who upgrade from Windows XP before July 12, 2018.
