Windows XP Updates Security Update

Here’s a way you can still get updates from Microsoft for Windows XP. I have tested this method myself on XP professional 32bit using automatic updates and it works at time of posting.

Important: Back up Windows before trying this method and use at your own risk!

In Folder Options. Click the View tab and uncheck the box that says ‘Hide extensions for known file types’

Create a new text document on desktop called xp.reg containing:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMWPAPosReady]
“Installed”=dword:00000001

Double click on file to add to registry
