Note... all XP support stopped on April 8, 2014.
May 1, 2014 for a last critical security patch.
Due to the new, #1 most awesome oops on MS's part where
ALL their OS's are affected, they have released at least 1 more patch
search for this KB Security Update for OS types XP-Win8 (KB2964358)
This one sweet honey boo-boo is only eclipsed by the Y2K potential of badness.
You will still get all the updates available up to May 1 for XP
and also other newer updates that are for all OS types.
