Support Extension on Security Essentials Anti-Virus for XP

Microsoft has reversed their decision made last week that would end their Security Essentials Anti-Virus product protection for XP machines at the same time in which security update support for XP systems would be ceased (April 08).  Now, Microsoft has stated that they are extending the support life for Security Essentials for XP OS until 2015.  However, users must realize that even though the Anti-Virus application will be supported, the Windows security updates will not be available after April 08.  So, keep in mind XP systems will be protected in a limited way because they will not be getting the operating system security patches that are released each month.
