    i heard that microsoft will adopt a new security standard for windows update and it may prevent xp machines from loading the site. is it true or false?
    and if is true will someone create a private update server like escargot did for msn wich revived all versions of it?

    stvpls,
    A few questions and a comment:
    !) What's your resource, where did you find this news / and can you post a quote from the source / and post the website's address for the source of the information;
    2) Are you suggesting that currently, if I go to WINDOWS UPDATE, I can find updates suitable for this old XP laptop? I didn't know that...
    3) I'm under the impression that WINDOWS UPDATES for XP ended...some time ago?

    Thanks for reading this.

    stvpls: Oops, I'll stand down now. Right here at XPF / 'Windows XP General Discussion, I think I'm reading information that mimics what you are saying. Sorry about pestering you.

    Wouldn't be the least bit surprised … and the extortion driven by pure unadulterated corporate greed continues.

    This is not true, Windows/Microsoft Update still works fine as of September 2019 and it will continue to function until Office 2010 ends support

    My Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit test computer is patched through its April 2019 unofficial "end of life".

    When I load its Microsoft Update app to check for updates, it still works fine.

    I'm still running Office 2007 on my Windows PCs ... runs fine.
    I don't keep any valuable info or do anything that requires security on Windows PCs.
    That would be too much like pasting a target on my back at a shooting range.

    Looks like XP holdouts are being painted into a smaller & smaller corner. I bailed and went to Linux after we lost Firefox. The price was right $0.00.

    Not sure why you think it's greedy. Sure it sucks, but official support lasted nearly 14 years and extended updates continued 5+ years beyond that. At some point a company has to move on and allocate those resources to their current projects.

    Microsoft has permanently stopped the website for updates for Windows XP?
    The search for updates ends with an Error Code: 0x80072EFF.

    i follow the instructions but without success, does not update with same error, i think Microsoft has disabled windows update site for windows XP,
    This noticed by and other windows xp users:
    https://msfn.org/board/topic/181795-so-windows-update-for-winxp-32-64-is-finally-turned-off/
    If true, then it is impossible to pass the latest updates that were released until May 2014.
    Microsoft does the biggest wrong to the best operating system ever released.

    I have not reinstalled lately, but I always use the above, so now I have a cache of all the updates, but when you first use it, you have to do so from the pc to be updated and it has to be online, it will search for all the needed downloads, then have you select all the ones you want downloaded , whether they are already installed or not, it saves them to a cache, (not on the current inuse drive, use a flash drive or an external hard drive) then when you reinstall before ever going online you do a search of pc with portup and then choose which to insstall and then you should be done, but I always check with microsoft updates after that to see if I need any more, and I forgot I always do a couple of offline searches to make sure that all my updates to priority updates get installed.

    also read throught the below threads to see if they help you
