As the deadline for Windows XP’s ‘End of Life’ continues to grow closer, Microsoft has taken another step forward in cutting out support for the aging operating system. Starting April 8, the Windows XP version of Microsoft Security Essentials will also be discontinued in tandem with support for XP.
Microsoft extends updates for Windows XP security products until July 14, 2015

Maybe people will finally start getting an actual antivirus program. IMO Security Essentials is not nearly enough protection for the average computer user. A good av only costs 30 bucks or so. Here's some reviews: http://anti-virus-software-review.toptenreviews.com/
