Your XP will operate for a few more years before it becomes so outdated that it can't read the new programs and advances made in soft ware. When that happens, you will be forced to purchase a newer computer. You may as well go for whatever the most current version of windows at the time you purchase a new computer so it will last longer than a used one that is already out of date. You should be running a Mal Ware program at all times, even when MS is providing support, MS free Malware doesn't cover programs that are not Microsoft Programs. If you download or purchase a non MS program, the MS malware program does not protect it because it is not an MS program. Only a malware program like Norton or Adaware or McAfee will cover all programs regardless of who created them.

You can change to a Linux operating system that will work just fine and be a lot less vulnerable to malware & viruses for a minimum of cash. If you look for a place to download a Linux distro to use yourself - it can be free (or just the cost of an optical disk to burn it to). The D630 can be upgraded to 8gb of RAM - so either 32 bit or 64 bit operating systems work. I have techier-than-I friends who suggested Mint Cinnamon, Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, Zorin, or Peppermint as good alternatives for Windows users transitioning to Linux. So - options - Free to $10 or so - change the operating system to Linux or get an upgrade to a more recent Windows operating system (probably under $90 on eBay or Amazon). I have had fairly good results with Windows 7 on my D630. One of them came with an XP sticker & the other with a Vista activation sticker - but I just added Windows 7 to both to avoid having to buy TWO upgrades, since 7 could be installed over XP or Vista.
