Updating windows 2016 to windows xp
I scan my computer regularly with Avast \u0022free\u0022 which seems to be doing a good job for about the last 5 years. The one exception to that rule is that my own, personal, anti-virus/anti-malware program, (Avast Free), which does it's virus signature file updates automatically.
(It will, however, occasionally ask me if I want to "try" it's professional version as a download, which, of course, is not free).
The chances that the Windows updates service been hijacked are extremely slim.
It's much more probable that, from times to times, updates intended for later versions could be found to compatible with Windows Xp. The caveas been that there was no thougrough testing done, it's more of an afterthough.
), I have moved to Windows Microsoft 7 x64 mainly to keep up-to-date.
At present i have had no problems with Windows Microsoft 7 x64 but as Windows 8 and 8,1 have been released, I don't know how long my support fot Windows 7 will last!
Despite the fact that there haven’t been any security updates or patches rolled out for Windows XP – with some industrial solutions being the exception – the system still runs on almost every tenth computer worldwide. That is how long it’s been since Microsoft abandoned its record-beating operating system, Windows XP.
However, I did note that when I use that option, (to manually update from Microsoft's Update website), that if I didn't turn the "automatic" function "on" - plus use Microsoft's Explorer browser - it' wouldn't let download any available or optional "updates"..!
Thus, I would turn on the "automatic" function first and turn it off when I was done, using MS-Explorer to make Microsoft happy about "giving" me their updates..! If you delete any updates or reinstall XP or simply run the System File Checker (SFC), Windows Update will attempt to replace the updates that you undid by the above and put them back in.
Despite the fact that during all this time there haven’t been any security updates or patches rolled out for its users (with some industrial solutions being the exception), the system still runs on almost every tenth computer worldwide.
On the other hand, this figure is considerably lower, compared to April 8 2014, when Microsoft pulled off one of the most controversial conclusions of support in computing history.
