Antivirus Windows Xp
Users will no longer be able to load antiviral products of Microsoft Security Essentials and Malicious Software Removal Tool.
Windows XP users are now even more at risk after Microsoft has ceased to support the anti-viral protection of the operating system. We recall that on 8 April last year, the corporation stopped technical support and automatic updates for Windows XP.
According to the official Microsoft portal, users will no longer be able to download antiviral products from Microsoft Security Essentials and Malicious Software Removal Tool. Updates for already encumbered defence programmes will be issued within a limited period of time. The company also cautioned against increasing the risk of exposure to computers that did not have the latest versions of security updates and recommended the use of Microsoft-supported platforms.
“Of course, we would like Microsoft to extend the support of Windows XP for a longer period of time [...], but since this has not happened, it is important for users to understand that the continued use of the platform could lead to the loss of financial and personal information as well as critical corporate documents. Now it will be much easier for villains to detect braces in the platform and undetected to enter the system " , noted by Zacharia.
