Windows XP Security Essentials updates to halt in April 2014

From IT Pro

"Microsoft is to withdraw its free Windows XP anti-malware tool when extended support for its aged desktop operating system ends in April, the software giant has confirmed.

The move has been announced in a note on the Windows XP End of Life page, which states support for Microsoft Security Essentials will cease on 8 April 2014.

'After April 8 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC,' the post reads.

‘Microsoft will also stop providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP on this date.

‘If you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security and viruses,’ it states.”
