Windows XP Logo

Released on 25th October 2001, Windows XP became the definitive, ubiquitous operating system of choice from Microsoft. XP was the first NT based operating system aimed at the consumer and has maintained a stalwart following and stubborn persistence in both the home and workplace despite reaching its end of support life on 8th April 2014, over 12.5 years from its release.

In line with our security mandate, HPC:Factor has decided to generate and a patching list for Windows XP Professional now that it has hit end of life. It is not deemed necessary to add an installation guide to this document, and there are no plans to add one in the future.
