    I did use Malwarebyte's Anti-Exploit in my XP VM before my Win7 crashed and had to rebuild my XP VM in Win8.1. The free version only covers major programs but that's good enough for most. :)

    Oracle ends JAVA support for XP

    I say if Oracle cannot support XP, then, it's time it releases JAVA to the Open Source community. Of course it won't; sad. :)
