winXP users w/NIS ... ANY problems since MS dropped support?

Anyone still using winXP connected to the internet, protected by NIS,  

have any new problems since MS pulled support long ago?  

Norton Chat doesn't answer this simple Q directly after 30 minutes giving me the run around.  They only said "we have XP customers still" + "we support xyz OS versions", never does protection - same as when MS support was in gear - get addressed head on.

What sort of problems?  NIS is still supported on XP, meaning that you still get current virus definitions updates and the product continues to protect you.

Thank you, hope to hear from others using BOTH XP + NIS like I assume YOU are?

I had no choice in keeping winXPpro back then but I DO now with win8.1-64

ergo my concern with this month's news of MS support cutbacks and NO love for win10, hoping

HDD & software holds out long enough for new computer with a bullet-proof win11 on board. 

Some say "every other winOS generation is stable" but not so much in between, e.g. win7, XP, etc.

Anyone else using XP w/o problems thanks to NIS??????
