Windows XP updates

What are the costs of ownership of Windows XP? Security Patches and Antivirus for example. Why should you update your Windows XP computer?

It doesn't cost anything to update the windows version you own. It is important to update them to get the latest security and patches updates for your computer, which helps for protection and fixes within the OS and microsoft software.

If you don't use one of the free antivirus, then when the subscrition of it runs out, it is important to update it, meaning you would have to buy the newer version of it in order, to get the latest updates for protection against new infections.
