    On 8th April 2014 Microsoft will not provide any support for Windows XP.
    They say this will leave your PC venerable as security updates will not be made.
    I run Windows XP as a virtual machine on Windows 7 Professional.
    Will the security of this be affected in the same way as a ‘stand alone’ XP system?

    Yeah so they say.

    Still you have a decent third party software and not use their own MSE and not be frivolous and press silly links I guess a another couple years out of it would be easy imo

    Patching vulnerabilities in the program code is not the same as providing protection from nasties by using an AV program.

    "XP Mode”

    beware the ticking time bomb
