ESET is committed to maintaining support for customers with ESET business products installed on the Windows XP operating system and will continue to offer the following services during the support period (valid through February 2022):
While your service from ESET will not change, your system protection might not be up to par with our latest products as some of our newest detection technology cannot backport. Also, your system could become more vulnerable to threats because it will no longer receive regular system updates from Microsoft. Regular system updates are used to repair exploits and patch existing security vulnerabilities.
When installing ESET business products on Windows XP, an error message might display. Install Service Pack 3 for Windows XP to allow installation of the ESET product you want to install. For more information and installation instructions see Windows XP Service Pack 3.
