Here’s the bottom line: TDECU strongly recommends that you upgrade as soon as possible if you are currently using Windows XP. Let’s face it folks, XP is 13 years old - that’s longer than most people keep their car!
In order to upgrade from XP, you will have to purchase new operating system software, and in many cases you may have to purchase new hardware as well. Of course, you have a choice to buy hardware and software wherever you choose. At TDECU, we want to make that purchase more convenient for you.
