    I though MS claimed there would NEVER be any more updates for my dear old XP I have just allowed to go online for a change.

    But it has slowly installed a ‘ Malicious Software Removal Tool – October 2014

    Hi Gordon
    It is Microsoft’s rootkit killer, and is available for multiple operating systems, so either they added XP as a bonus, or (more likely) by mistake :twisted:
