    Hey all I have an older gateway here that was just full of viruses and whatnot after some cleanup it was still just buggy so I restored it to day one but I realize windows xp support has ended, is there anyway to bring it up to date manually easily?

    Yes you can still get updates on Windows XP. I recently did a system recovery of one of my laptops that came pre-installed with XP and I am still getting updates.You need to go to Microsoft Update in Internet Explorer not from the Control Panel. As I have found that installing Updates from CP no longer works. If you don't already have Service Pack 3 you will need to install it again as Kemical said.
