[Crosspost to WinXP General] If you want to keep your computer secure, you have less than a month to get SP3 installed: Support for WinXP (x86) SP2 ends on 13 July 2010. After that date, computers running WinXP (x86) SP2 "will no longer receive software updates from Windows Update" (i.e., Automatic Updates will not work and Windows Update website will not be accessible) until SP3 has been installed. Extended Support for WinXP SP3 will continue through 08 April 2014. • What does it mean if my version of Windows is no longer supported? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/what-does-end-of-support-mean HOW TO get a computer running WinXP...SP2 fully patched (after a clean install) http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.general/msg/a066ae41add7dd2b -- ~Robear Dyer (PA Bear) MS MVP-IE, Mail, Security, Windows Client - since 2002 Roger wrote: > Hi all, > Any comments, I run Win pro sp2 on IE 7 in past I have read people having > problems after upgrade to sp3.
