- Windows XP End of Support | Trend Micro Official Statement
This article contains Trend Micro's official statement regarding Windows XP's End of Support (EOS).
Microsoft has announced that all official support for the Windows XP OS has ended 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. You can refer to this article for more information about Microsoft’s announcement.
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.
While our Internet security products can be installed on Windows XP, we encourage all of our users to upgrade their PCs to a more modern operating system which will provide greater stability and security.
After the End of Support date, we will provide limited technical support for issues encountered on Windows XP. Windows XP users can visit esupport.trendmicro.com for technical solutions or can consider upgrading to the latest operating system to stay protected.
