I think it's not a good idea to change the default before 08.04.2014 (WinXP
Professional Extended Support End Date) or even 14.07.2015 (Windows Server 2003
R2 Extended Support End Date).
According to the NetApplications (http://www.netmarketshare.com), WinXP is
currently used by 31% of the desktop internet users.
Btw, how can I override this default value?
