|Like I found out, MS has stopped it's update service of xp (i had xp pro X64 edition) annyway because of this updates to java or net framework, browsers HTML5 etc etc are all going to surpass what XP has (services were cancelled for this product completely in April 2015)|
I had serious issues with the Steam platform, it actually BSOD'd eery time the program tried to update then on the 3rd restart attemp it would update normally, this is all due to XP being all but obsolete now
had to happen sometime, my advice is to switch to another OS, I reccomend win 7, as it is by all accounts better than win 8 or 8.1, and you would be eligible for a free win 10 update
you can check the syntax of BSOD error with the "blue sreen viewer"
