Malwarebytes has taken the stand that we are committed to continuing to support Windows XP for as long as Microsoft allows us to.  In fact, we’re one of the few providers still willing to do so.  This stand means that we’ll continue offering our core anti-malware protection to the best of our ability, given technical limitations.  Any new features added over time will be supported as feasible.  If a new feature, such as our anti-ransomware protection, relies on newer technologies not supported on older operating systems such as Windows Vista or XP, then we are not able to support it on those systems.  Any features not supported will be called out on the product page system requirements.
