I have to find out what my husband has on his computer,we have his and hers

I think I remember reading that windows was going to stop supporting XP soon.
It might be a good idea to start looking for a new system soon.
Support for xp will end in 2014. If xp came with that machine, it's definitely older than 3-4 years. If you can afford it, you should replace it with
a Windows 7 machine. You will need to order it though, as 7 is no longer sold in retail stores. Dell and Lenovo both carry new machines with Windows 7
Look for a machine with at least an intel i5(or AMD equivalent) or better processor, and a minimum of 6 gigabytes of ram. I usually recommend a full
size laptop(17.3") as a desktop replacement, but understandably, some folks like desktops better. Nothing wrong with that.
newegg.com or dell.com, are both good places to shop for a Windows 7 machine. Personally, I would avoid Windows 8. It's the most unpopular Windows
ever. I have replaced many of them for customers with Windows 7.
ETA: Be sure to install the latest flash plug-in I mentioned on page one. Without it, many games won't work.
