'AVG free' is warning about end of life now. I wonder how long it will be before 'Avast! free' version starts to warn because the protection is compromised by the vulnerability of end of life XP. (As if it's any different now than it has been for 13 years
13 years of browser hijacks, worms and viruses ).
I've been looking at an XP system for an elderly person.
I like the idea of the limited user account but I'm not sure it's possible to recommend it to the ordinary user as it's security going forward is still going to be questionable.
I can't upgrade to Windows 7 as the machine is not up to it (I find this after I have installed and tested Windows 7 on the machine )
Currently I am looking at Lubuntu with XP in Virtualbox but I'm wondering if the user will be able to cope. It might take some very concise instructions.
