will I be able to install windows xp updates after 2014

    Question

  • If I install windows XP after 2014 (since I do a lot with my 8 year old PC), will I still be able to download and install updates as normal? Of course, I do know that no more updates will be released after 2014, but I mean, can I install the updates that were released before 2014 as normal (through the windows update site)?

    Also, is there a way to add more than one site at a time to the restricted zone in IE (such as a registry key)?

  • I'll probably be crucified for recommending this but after the updates are phased out you can still use the Windows XP auto-patcher to get your updates. It is located at http://www.autopatcher.com/ and it is updated frequently so it contains all the updates available for XP at any given time. It is a standalone program that can be run over a network or individually on client machines. Very useful tool when you dont want to wait forever or keep checking Windows update to make sure you have everything up to date.

  • After 2014 will be some very short time for that Windows Update will be offer updates for install (when finish support for 98 it was three months), but i assume that time will be now more shortly. So i propose you downloade before that date all avalaible updates and make you own install cd with implementating this updates.

  • So, I'm assuming Microsoft won't release a service pack in 2014, combining all the updates for Windows XP.... And the way to download all the updates is by checking the ones installed on Windows XP, and then download them via Microsoft's download center.

    Is there any documentation for the Internet registry settings? I can tell which zone is which by looking at the keys, but I don't know what to edit...

  • Fourth edition of service pack is unlikely to appear. Yes, exactly as you suggest, but it is quite possible that some computer magazines that do for you.

    The best way is set up one testing domain in visual settings menu of internet explorer and find what happend in change in registry keys.

  • Thank you all for helping me out. I don't know about autopatcher... but unless there's any others, that may be what I may have to use... Otherwise, I'm just going to have to download the updates manually.

  • well there are groups that like the XP system and Ive "seen some talk around", that some are trying to put together teams to develop updates and patches in preparation of XP no longer beig supported. that was one of the reasons ( not the only one though ) behind this project. I think there will be people that keep working with the XP type of theme for a long time yet.

  • The example you mentioned seemed to be another OS. I want to "keep" windows xp...

  • I actually took a long look at the site, and it seems to download all the updates from Microsoft. I wish it could just simply download all the updates and let me install them, but you have to use the program to install them, too.
