I have a cute little IBM X60 Ultraportable that I sometimes use.
Unfortunately, RAM canot be upgraded to more than 1.5GB so I am stuck with XP.
I am worried about what to do after MS stop supporting XP, in case I need to format and re-install everything.
I have files to install SP3 upgrades for XP and the Office. But the rest can be updated only from MS. Obviously this won't be possible after MS stop supporting the XP.
Is there is place I can download installable updates since SP3?
I think you will find that, for quite some time, you can still download the updates (in the usual manner) that have been previously provided. MS just won't be adding any more. So any new security flaws that affect XP won't be patched.
If you care to try you will find Windows 2000 updates are still available for download (I recently re-installed W2000) and W2000 was abandoned many years ago. No new updates have ever been added since MS stopped supporting the OS but any that were available on the final day of W2000 availability are still there on the MS site and download using Windows Update. I expect XP will be the same. So 'Don't Panic'!
