Re: How to fully protect XP even when it expires in 2014
The quickest and simplest way to make XP more secure on the internet is to use it from a limited account. most of the people use an administrator account as they want everyone to let them do what they want to do. I was having issues when I upgraded my window 10 0xc0000225 was fixed by visiting https://hpetechnicalsupportnumber.com/blog/how-to-fix-hp-error-code-0xc0000225/ Microsoft has also stopped supporting Office 2003, and this is now vulnerable software. If possible, upgrade to a more recent version

Re: How to fully protect XP even when it expires in 2014
As for me, I used Windows 7 system for two years, I found it works fins and steadily, but I made one mistake about the admin password, I changed the admin password to a little complex, later, I can't remember what it is, and can't login it,finally, I used iSeePassword windows password recovery program to reset my Windows 7 password, it works so easy.

This is the article:

maybe it's helpful to somebody!

Windows 8 is better for touch screen, which is not for common users. I upgrade XP to windows 7, but forget the admin password, finially, I find the solution here: http://www.passwordtech.com/how-to-reset-windows-7-password.html. I guess the best solution is to upgrade XP to Windows 7, which is good for all.

Maybe this is not the place to ask for problem! I lost my XP login admin password. And got suggestion from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/forgot-windows-xp-password.htm Will update XP to Windows 8.1 need password? if yes, I update my XP to 8.1 without password unlock now.

How to fully protect XP even when it expires in 2014
I am an IT Consultant in North America and I have run into many Clients who simply cannot afford to upgrade their hardware and or software to Windows 7 or 8. The main reasons are the amount of money and time it takes to accomplish this. A typical example is that their existing vertical business application software needs to be rewritten for either Windows 7 or 8. Further since their hardware is still working they simply refuse to migrate from XP but they are afraid of getting viruses and malware. Essentially many Microsoft Users are stuck between a rock and hard place.

So I found an excellent User friendly Linux OS that cocoons all versions of Windows: i.e. XP and or 7 inside a very innovative Virtual Machine so that the users data files are saved to a Linux partition while the Windows OS & software is initially backed up and stored in just one .vdi file safely inside the Linux partition,  which contains their original Windows installation with all its programs too. So if they get hit with a morphing virus it takes them only one click to restore their original copy of Windows XP or 7 and of course since their data is always safe inside the Linux partition and fully read writable from the Windows OS with bookmarked folders there is no downtime as it only takes seconds to click on their Robolinux menu option that restores their original perfect Windows Virtual Machine back to the way it was before the virus struck them.

The result is my Clients are saving a lot of money and they are completely immune to all Windows malware and now they have as much time as they need to rewrite their software for either Linux or Windows 7. None of my Clients will even consider Windows 8 as a solution.

Check it out: Google Robolinux.
