Windows XP Support Ends: Buy and Install Security Software

Source: Symantec

As part of its termination of Windows XP support, Microsoft is no longer proving Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows XP. It also has ceased providing security updates to XP computers with Security Essentials already installed.
