Security software vendor Avast recently conducted a survey of its Windows XP users and found that 27 percent of them don’t plan on changing their operating system, though the system can become more vulnerable to unaddressed security risks with the passage of time.

Although Avast has stated they will continue supporting their software on Windows XP for the next 2 years or more, they caution XP users that antivirus software is not a substitute for an absence of operating system security updates.
