I am using Windows XP on my second computer, and I will continue to do so for years to come as there is no point in upgrading it. I only use it to play old games on.

Will Microsoft stop supplying patches and security fixes at some point, as I have the computer connected to the internet and I don't want to have it damaged by a virus or bug. Does Windows Update continue to work as long as there are patches for XP?

Microsoft has extended security patches for Windows XP until August 14, 2014.
