I use Windows XP Home with SP3 on a desktop traditional set with a Modem. WinXP/SP3 will be supported by Microsoft until 2014, so no problem, who knows what tomorrow brings ?
Occasionally I find my mouse frozen at startup. Apart from this, everything works perfect for long periods. Get my Modem replaced ? Yes, I could with no cost, but will that cure the problem ? Is it worth it ? In my case no, for the sake of 10 seconds every now and again, it would be a waste of time.
Cure ? Pull out the power plug or switch off the power at the mains for 10 seconds. EVERY single time, it never fails to cure the problem - the mouse works OK on startup.
