Microsoft Windows XP EOS Announcement

Microsoft has announced that all official support for the Windows XP OS will end on April 8, 2014, which includes all bug fixes and vulnerability patches. After April 8, any new vulnerability that may be discovered or targeted at Windows XP will not be addressed by Microsoft and may be of concern to users, especially those who have not yet upgraded to the latest supported OS.

Trend Micro End of Support for Windows XP

Trend Micro continues to recommend that users upgrade to the latest supported version of an OS as soon as possible, but also understands that not everyone is able to upgrade on a regular basis, especially on older machines. In order to help our consumers safely upgrade to the latest operating system, Trend Micro will be extending its support for Windows XP-based clients on its consumer protection products (Titanium) to at least December 31, 2015.
