Windows XP SP2 support ends tomorrow

Posted on Monday, July 12 2010 @ 20:25:32 CEST by

NetworkWorld notes support for Windows 2000 and Windows XP Service Pack 2 will end tomorrow. Windows XP users can continue to receive updates by installing Service Pack 3, while Windows 2000 users will have to upgrade to a newer operating system.
Microsoft is warning customers that "Unsupported products or service packs pose a significant risk to your computer's security. Therefore, Microsoft advises customers to migrate to the latest supported service pack and/or product prior to the end of support. Our latest products, such as Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, provide greater security, reliability, environment-friendly features, and a host of other benefits."

The move to end support for Windows 2000 and XP SP 2 is no surprise. Microsoft established the end-of-support date of July 13, 2010 for XP SP2 when it released Service Pack 3 more than two years ago.

Although Windows 2000 has been around far longer, both Windows 2000 and Windows XP Service Pack 2 will receive essentially the same treatment starting July 13 - no more "security updates or non-security hotfixes."
