Is Windows Update Working in XP?

June 28, 2014 - Of Course It Is.

I've been asked a good question about Windows Update in Windows XP. Did it stop running when support for Windows XP ended?

The answer is no, emphatically. For example, if you are running Office 2007 on XP, you will continue to get all the updates for that product, security or otherwise, until support for it comes to an end.

Bottom line: don't turn updates off.
