As of April 8, 2014 Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP. The same for Microsoft Security Essentials except Microsoft will provide updates for Security essentials but after April 8 you will not  be able to download this product, only updates available until July 14, 2015.

If you wish to prolong the use of XP then I advise downloading the version of Microsoft Security Essentials and storing it before April 8, 2014.

Eyelevel recommends upgrading to Windows 7 before April or run the risk of attacks from hackers.

You may also wish wait until 2015 when Microsoft releases Windows 9. With the current unpopularity of Windows 8 we recommend Windows 7, which is currently a quite stable Operating System.

Windows XP market share is currently (as of December 2013) at 28.98% which is second only to Windows 7 with 47.52%
