    Default Microsoft Extends XP Malware Updates One Year

    Microsoft softened its hard-line stance on halting support for Windows XP after the April 2014 cutoff date, stating it will provide antimalware signature updates for XP users through July 14, 2015. The move, Microsoft said, is designed to help businesses complete XP migrations.

    From my understanding, that is only for Businesses with the Enterprise version of OS installed, or did I not read that correctly?
    If you think you might be infected with malware or have recently cleansed your computer of malware without the help of an expert, please read and follow the instructions in How to Start Removing Viruses and Spyware from your Computer. This can alleviate time consumed in trouble shooting your current computer problems.

    If your problem is solved, here's how to say thanks!

    No, its for all of XP. There doing so that Business will have more time to complete switch overs. If you run MSSE you will get the support for XP. If you don't only the business OS will be covered. At least that's what i get out of it.

    XP antimalware support for consumers is extended to users running Microsoft Security Essentials.
