    Hi to all

    after using an original copy of windows xp home edition, I continued to receive xp updates even though it is said that i support was terminated in 2014 ... I phoned to microsoft, saying that they don't know anything, someone can explain to me for please something.

    Thanks in advance

    Regards.

    have you gone to microsoft updates and run a scan to see if there are any updates? if you have all your updates , then disable automatic updates. Mine is disabled always after getting all my updates installed

    Did you get patch to counter Wannacry via auto update? I didn't. I had to Google to identify the designation of the patch, and search and download from MS! If some of us get a timely update, and others do not, when using auto update, it suggests another vulnerability awaiting someone coming along to exploit.

    I think I read somewhere that the patch did not really work, so I have never installed it. I surf responsibly and run cleaner and scanners often, I disabled updates once I was fully updated to lessen used resources. :)

    Obviously if you (re)installed or factory resetted the machine you will get updates that were releawed until 2014 april (if you are using the POSReady 2009 trick then it's understandable)
