Updates for Windows XP are no longer available since Microsoft doesn't support that version now. Support for XP ended in April this year.

From Microsoft:

"After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Windows XP."

✔ Best Answer
You don't necessarily need a new tower. As stated above, XP is outdated & no longer being supported, so there are no more updates to be had. Assuming your hardware is capable, all you'd have to do is replace XP with Windows 7 - it will supposedly be supported until 2020.

You should get the XP security updates up to April 2014 but Win 7 is a far better and safer option. If for some special reason you want to hang on to XP then at least see these:
