    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.
