Clearing it off the XP machine will be a pain, you might not even know it has an infection. Look at it another way. Those tills process personal data, such as names and finger prints. Any back door security holes won't get fixed so someone might be getting into it without you knowing.

Agreed - which is why the advice and fobbed-off explanation sent to Tim is bad.

They told me the Tills use XP Embedded which will still be supported by Microsoft.

I checked the tills the other day. The tills are running XP Pro and the Reval unit is running XP home.
