And now to matter at hand, you will find the ENU release of Windows XP x86 nestled between the 2 ITA Windows XP releases. If you are running the latest version of autopatcher updater and autopatcher, the latest updated script for Windows XP x86 can be found on releases2... start apup, click options and will see an address bar, add "2" (without quotes) before .list click ok and the new list will be displayed, the one you are looking for is dated April 29.
With starting of the countdown clock on Windows XP there will be probably less updates to contend with (more possibly sporadic) until the calendar hits 8th/April/2014

XP x86 & x64 English want 1.4.14
Java JRE ... 1.4.5
C++ Runtimes ... 1.4
If you're running APUP 1.3 you will not see these scripts at all, 1.4.5 wont see the XP English scripts, and so on.

I realise XP is almost EOL, but I've still got a lot of clients using it. And why not? XP has been a great OS - feels like a comfortable pair of shoes. I'm using 7 myself, but I like XP in many ways because it's often easier and more fun to configure (although as we all know, XP can be a real pig when it spits it's dummy). Do any of you think that there is a likelihood that MS might do a SP4 to roll up all the updates between SP3 and April 8? It would be great to have that, as I can see a number of people still using XP for a while after the big EOL.

Why stop using an Operating system is it past it's use by date, knowing there are so many users running Windows XP x86. I ran Windows 2000 for a couple of years after its EOL and in the end decided to switch up to XP, still using it but the x64 Edition.(wish I kept some older hardware to continue running W2K)

Thanks Whatacrock for the clue.
Do I have to run Sweeper after updates are downloaded?
I'm a non-techy guy.

Run autopatcher -- if it states "Official" release then there is no need to run to Sweeper so the opposite is true for "UnOfficial"
