Updating to windows xp pro
In addition, updates for non-XP (OS) software will still come out since these are not directly related to XP, itself.
I suggest that you apply only one, see if it works OK before installing the next.
I thought Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP?!
If that's true, why am I getting what appear to be legitimate updates that try to install when I shut down my computer running XP?
You do NOT have to "let" any program, (well almost, any..), "automatically" update their program files on your computer and I'd advise you to make your computer ask for permission to do ANY updates.
There is a setting in your Control Panel, under Automatic Updates, where you can select that option rather than the "automatic" option.
