As of last July Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP without
SP3. If you have Windows XP with SP3 it will be supported until 2014.
Just out of curiosity, download and run System Information for Windows
. When it opens scroll down to Licenses
and click on it. When it opens you should see Windows Key
along with the twenty five character alphanumerical code. Check to be sure that this matches the code on the case.Please be aware:
Many free downloaded programs now come bundled with unwanted or unneeded third party software. For this reason it is important that when you open a program and begin the installation you need to read and understand what you are being offered. Often there now will be a third party software which will already have a check mark in the acceptance box that if left that way will install the third party software.
