Hi I typed in a query 'Microsoft sabotage XP Pro user', and I came to the first post. I too, am having crashes, more recently now that XP isnt supported by Microsoft. Im sure that its so I go and buy a new operating system.

Microsoft is not 'sabotaging' XP users. They simply aren't supporting XP anymore. It's been 12 years.

However, some people will turn anything into a conspiracy.

If I google 'drinking glass conspiracy'...guess what. There is a conspiracy theory on that.
Or google for anything

true dat usafret.

At this point in XP's life I'm surprised you can even connect to the internet and still have the operating system function.

I strongly suggest trying Ubuntu or a similar GNU/Linux OS if you need it for an old computer, regardless of what you think Microsoft might be doing. It's small, easy to use and learn, completely customizable, and is free. No more paying for upgrades. There's also lots of great software that replaces things in windows.

As a current XP user (my laptop will not accept a Windows 7 upgrade), I have not experienced any crashes or BSODs. More than likely, and since it is a 12 year old OS, I'd guess that one of the latest (read "last") updates did not install properly and you should probably roll back to a restore point and start re-installing the last updates... Or you could just switch to linux as I'm considering.

In the interest of (Mod) balance :D  XP is working fine here for me on a netbook I won't pay to upgrade. I turned off automatic updates before April 8th in case something went wrong but many of my customers still use it, particularly corporates working behind a Linux firewall.

I also have XP running inside a Virtual Machine in Mint Mayo and I reckon it's quite safe in there.

I doubt there's a Microsoft conspiracy - the remaining staff after the purge are busily trying to bring out the next big thing, or maybe the one after that.
