XP Unlimited is not a Microsoft product. There is significant question as to its legality. In any event,using an operating system that has been modified by third parties does open the user to problems. How can such a system be secured? Normal Windows patches may not apply, even if they could be had. And, yes, often these are written with malware embedded.

Your 'friend' is in serious trouble in several different ways. Here at Geeks to Go, we support only authorized versions of Windows Operating systems. I strongly suggest that your friend completely format his drive and install an authentic (and legal) operating system. If price is an issue, several new versions of Linux are currently available at no charge that do an excellent job.
