Welcome to Eileen's Lounge!

I'd say it is time to move on from Windows XP, an operating system that was released more than 19 years ago. Microsoft has long since stopped releasing security updates for it.
Avast Antivirus for Windows XP and AVG Antivirus for Windows XP are still available for free, but they arent being updated anymore.
Best wishes,
Hans

I too would say you really should move on from XP. However, if you must stick with it does anything on this page help you:
