If you don't have SP3 the support ended this last July.

I can't seem to find anything that is set in stone for those who have SP3.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks Platypus. I saw this date as well, but couldn't find any publication by Microsoft to confirm this.

Where did you read this?

The XP Product lifecycle is documented here:

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/sea...Filter=FilterNO

Extended support (the provision of security patches) ceases 08/04/2014 for most varieties of XP. Support for embedded XP (devices with XP in ROM or Flash memory) continues until Jan 2016.

Thank you. I gave it a blurry eyed attempt late last night and didn't find what I was looking for. Glad to see the date that I had found previously is substantiated.
