And XP did not expire, you just don`t get updates, but who cares, MSE will update just fine and so will MBAM.

And don`t download email to it, use your ISP email program or yahoo, or whoever you use for your email address.

And download Chrome as your browser as some sites don`t support IE7 or whatever comes with XP or can be upgraded with XP.

You've been on fire lately Brian .. I keep bumping into you on threads. I added to your reputation recently, so it will take a while before I can do it again. Just know that I keep trying to tip the scales in your favor.

Good stuff!

Ok I am back, Update The ultimate licence was transferred from a defunct desktop to the acer. I have always hated waste so I recycle or reuse as much as I can. That is how I manage to be comfortably retired.
From previous post I decide to use the original XP as I made it dual boot. This machine is now a server for my old magicjack so no emails or web surfing. My old magicjack needs to be plugged into a computer. Due to magicjack policy's I cannot transfer my subscription from my old MJ to a new one! I have paid up to 2019 so it did not make sense to upgrade as this is a backup MJ. Now the whole system will be given to my 93 year old mother who lives in UK. Now she can make free calls to USA as the MJ has a local USA phone number.
Thanks all for your input, will be leaving soon back to UK with my wife for a few months to take care of mother and continue on our bucket list.

Thanks for the update Bob, probably your best choice to return XP to the machine.

Safe journeys,

Bill
