Microsoft discontinued support for XP 2 on July 13, 2010. People need to get XP 3 as no more XP 2 vulnerabilities will be patched.

"... Windows XP (SP2) users do not have any patches supplied to them in this patch run*... Windows XP (SP2) is now officially abandoned, orphaned and no longer supported... UPGRADE to SP3 or get pwned.
Windows 2000 users need to upgrade to a different version of the operating system altogether, as the entire Windows 2000 line is discontinued..."
