    No Updates for Microsoft Security Essentials on Windows XP anymore?

    As we all know Microsoft has ended support for Windows XP. There will be no more updates for the same. I want to know what about MSE. Will it get updates.

    I am using this on a old system that still has Windows XP. In the name of antivirus I am only using MSE. It being long time I had not found any update released here. I hope this will keep the system protected from different virus as it was doing before.

    Any suggestion will be appreciated.

    It is right. The support for Windows XP is officially ended and so on all security updates. You are not going to get any new update for the same. To keep your system protected you have to upgrade your system to Windows Vista or Windows 7.

    MSE in that is receiving updates regularly. I had checked a article on that on the official website that will says that windows xp is not going to get any kind of updates.

    Nope, it will not get any further update on XP.

    You can try using some other antivirus. There are ample of them available for Windows XP. Like AVG. Which is free and available for all type of operating system. You can use it keep your system protected. Just remove mse. I had seen so many free antivirus still working really fine on XP. They do not hamper the performance also. You can try a old version if the new one is not working properly.

    This time you have to rely on third party security tools only.
