Well, for those who dont knwo, I'm stilla big fan of Windwos XP, XP Pro. I have two systems I have with it still on them. As for the rest, they are Windows 7, Since I despised Windows 8, 8.1, and 10(!0 spys on you hardcore). So as a I.T. Major, I was wondering about the Community in the Windows XP. I love the OS. and the GUI. I always loved how it's so easy to learn and adapt and how easy it is to fix issues. I love it because it was always my favorite OS.

I found out awhile ago, there was a Unofficial Service Pack 4. Yes microsoft still releases malware removal updates but this give you updates that you would need for every day security. I went to Major Geeks and downloaded the Service Pack 4 and installed it. Then i started to get Updates. I was so happy with the results and glad that I can still use XP with security updates.

Service Pack 4 Link

Note: the only problem I had was that Avira wouldn't let me install the updates because it blocks anything like this to update your windows files. I uninstalled it and installed the SP4 and reinstalled it.

I like your wallpaper lol (for the nostalgia)

This probably isnt worth it. Besides the fact that youre probably still going to get hacked, Windows XP only supports a maximum of 4 GB of memory. I'm sure there are unstable ways of getting by the 4 GB limitation but again I would still say it isnt worth the effort

Alternative: Go to Windows 7 or Windows 10, then look into customizing the desktop and GUI to make it look like Classic Windows (Windows XP). Windows 10 does send a lot of information to Microsoft but there are many features which you can disable as well. Beyond that, really everything tracks you now so theres no use getting too paranoid over it (otherwise you may as well stop using google, or just stop doing any sort of internet search for that matter)

I work in IT and I can promise there is little advantage to using Windows XP as your main operating system. If you REALLY need it (Maybe to run some sort of old aplication), then get a computer with Windows 7 or 10 on it, then run Windows XP as a virtual machine within that computer.
