What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?


Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ended on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ended on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support ended on July 13, 2010 as well.
There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows.
Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.

How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed?
Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed:
1) Click on the Start Button
2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version)
3) Click on Properties
On this window, it should tell you which version of Windows along with which service pack is installed). It should also tell you whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows.

I just installed windows 7 on my PC and now my microphone is not recognized. How can I solve this problem?


Like Windows XP with other service pack 1-3

Windows 7 OS had service pack 2 also that update all of the driver. This will fix the microphone problem. Just download and install the service pack2 (updated driver).

I lost my restore and internet


Microsoft issued Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3 for XP to patch (and "improve") the OS. The list of patches and downloads for XP are here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/resultsForProduct.aspx?displaylang=en&ProductID=4c937a02-bae0-4317-a1a9-0c56cd979d05

You needed to install the service packs to continue accessing Microsoft's updates for your computer. Microsoft assumes you don't want to lose this data. You could get rid of the problem by reinstalling the entire OS from your current disc (if you have a full version, if you have an update version of XP you'll need the OS disc for Win95, Win98, WinMe or Win2K). Start with formatting the hard disc. However, you will lose the ability to contact MS for updates with Windows Update until you manually download and install the Service Packs (including SP3).

Alternatively you can build a new recovery disc for your current XP version, if you take the IT versions of the service packs. This takes several steps - first you need to copy all the files from the CD to a hard disc. Then you need to slipstream in the service packs. Then get the boot image files from the CD and create a new .iso with all of the files. For SP2, http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slipstream.asp has more information on the details.

If you want to add the SP3, you need to add the following set of steps:
http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/xpsp3_slipstream.asp

I hope you can get your machine to function.

Keep gatting error code 80073715 on windows update!


Hello,

You can try the following and it should clear it up.

Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder in C:windows (it will be recreated next time you visit Windows Update again)
You will lose your history but that's not important.
If the above step doesnt clear it up continue below:
Click Start, Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service. ( with Vista it may read Windows
Update)
Click Stop.
Stopping the service will take a moment.

Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
a. Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot%, and then click OK.
b. Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
c. Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.

Click Start. Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Start.
Starting the service will take a moment.

Retry Windows Update before reading further.

If you need to reinstall the ActiveX controls (because they may have become
corrupt):-

Follow this article (the article is listed the download for the old client) -
The Windows Update Web site and the Microsoft Update Web site do not scan
for updates when
you repair a failed installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 or of Windows
XP Service
Pack 1

Your windows 2000 must have Service Pack 4 installed in order to install quicktime. The latest version of quicktime is 7.1.6
To update your Win 2000 to service pack four, run windows update. Anywhere you go on the internet quicktime is free.
You can download by clicking on the link below.
http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/quicktime716forwindows.html
Add the page for quicktime to your favorities.
At the right side of the link that opend.
Look under Download Details There is a blue down arrow. 19.1MB
Just click it. You can save it to your desktop but I suggest you install it. Quicktime comes out with free updates from time to time.
To check your current service pack number for 2000. Open the System icon in your control panel. You will find your current Service Pack version at the General tab.

Good Luck!
