Updating windows xp pro; microsoft.support = microsoft.support
Windows 7 isn’t the latest, but it’s the most widely used version of Windows and will be supported until January 14, 2020.We’ve already explained why it’s time to let go of Windows XP and what will happen when Microsoft finally stops supporting it on April 8, 2014. It doesn’t support modern hardware properly and it isn’t as secure as modern versions of Windows because it doesn’t have User Account Control and other modern security features.(Forget what you may have heard about UAC in the Windows Vista days — it’s better now.) As time goes on, Windows XP will become increasingly insecure and both hardware and software vendors will stop supporting it.Currently you will receive Zero Security Updates on XP SP2, MS support (KB, security updates) for XP SP2 ended over 18 months ago (I can't recall the exact date).So it won't offer any updates much less SP3, you will have to manually download it, install it and then windows update should offer the KBs released since SP3, be ready for a flood.
