If you however have good hardware that you want to keep, then you can upgrade to Windows 8 or e.g. Linux Mint.

In one case where I wanted to keep an old PC I got, I decided to spend €60 on Windows 8 Professional to keep this alive. In other cases I have installed the "Windows like" Linux Mint.

 

If you go for Linux Mint, then be sure to download and create a bootable DVD first to ensure that your hardware is compatible. I have self several times experienced problems with the Broadcom wifi modules installed in some laptops.

 

Either way, I will recommend that you make up your mind wrt. this as soon as possible as staying on Windows XP is not really worth it.
