2009. Security patch for XP

I hear there is a special security patch for XP. I thought XP wasn't supported any more. What should I do.

The patch is plugging a hole in the Remote Desktop Service function. Once you download it, it is simple to apply the fix and only takes seconds. Our advice is apply the patch if you are still using XP. This also applies to Windows 2003 Server.

Anytime you apply special patches we strongly recommend do an image backup so if something bad happens with the patch you can always revert back to before the patch.

You should give serious consideration to upgrading your system to supported versions of the Operating System. Remember Windows 7 is supposed to lose support this coming January.
