My Windows XP still receives new security updates from Microsoft often!  Grin

Only a malicious software removal tool and an occasional overwhelmingly important fix.

BTW, did anyone realize that this thread is over a year old?  The quoted post started it up again.

OP here.   N2MO is running W7 on the desktop with dual DVI monitors.  Found factory video cards on eBay for dirt cheap  (Back end is Windows Server 2012)

By the time W7 is EOL, I expect to jump to FOSS as Linux is sneaking into the mix on the SDR and specialty servers.

If you put in the registry tweak, the XP machine becomes POS ready2009 which receives all microsoft security updates until 2019. This month I got 7 updates (including the malicious software removal tool)
I got it from the "Unofficial Service Pack 4"
However, since Christmas, I have been using Ubuntu 14.10 as my prime O/S (still got XP and 7 on the machine)

Oh, OK.  I didn't see that anyone mentioned the registry tweak before--and thanks for that info.  I put in that tweak and am getting the updates now too.

Tried the tweak, and something in the POS updates screws with my fonts on certain webpages.  Very annoying.  I had to go back to an early restore point.  And yes, I did play around with the clear type and other settings.
