Support cut for Windows XP SP1

author alang

Microsoft will end support for Windows XP Service Pack 1 and SP1a on Tuesday, leaving people no option but to upgrade to Service Pack 2 if they wish to continue to receive crucial components, including security software.

Today, Microsoft ended support for Microsoft Windows XP computers running with Service Pack 1. This forces SP1 users to upgrade to SP2, enabling them to get crucial updates, software etc.

Earlier this year in July, Microsoft ended support for Windows 98 and ME.

Cutting support for these products clears the deck for Microsoft’s upcoming operating system, Windows Vista.

Vista is expected to be released to business customers next month and to consumers in January.
