    Why? No one should be using XP any longer. Any issues you have with XP would probably be resolved in a newer, supported operating system.

    I am happy to see the issue is now resolved. Note that as InfoPro mentioned, it's likely a good idea to upgrade to a newer operating system as soon as possible to avoid issues like this in the future.

    Thank you.
