    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?

    mine is an old 32bit NTFS file system.

    Roger, just go ahead and do the update to SP3 (after preparing your
    machine, of course). I did the update (SP3) when it first came out
    and have NEVER had any problems as a result of it.

    x86 means 32-bit ...
