Qureshi, of Walsgrave, England, is now the world's youngest Microsoft Certified Professional, officials said.
"We are just so proud of him," the boy's father, Asim Qureshi, told the Express newspaper. "He has plans to take an advanced test in the future but he has to concentrate on school for now. He was very interested in computers from the age of three so I started explaining to him about hardware and software and installing programs."
He said the boy was given a certificate that he now keeps on display in his bedroom.
