Microsoft Security Essentials – Extended support for XP

Linden Design PC ServicesMicrosoft are no longer supporting Windows XP as we posted previously, and originally, this included updates for the free anti-malware product, Microsoft Security Essentials.

However, Microsoft have changed their mind, and Security Essentials will receive updates until April 2015, giving XP users an extra year of protection from viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

This is fantastic news for XP users who are unable to upgrade for any reason.

Downloads of this software for XP will stop on April 8th this year, only existing users will be able to update, so if you plan on using this product, make sure you get it before April 8th.
