Boy, I often imagined how this thread would look like if we kept only crucial information here, and moved all Offtopic, and case-studies in separate threads :)

Currently KB4501226 is no longer available for XP via AU / WU / MU and MS Update Catalog. It is unfathomable if the update was withdrawn because of an error. The download link is still working.

Or the update was posted by mistake. If this is so, then it means that updates for XP are released, but they are simply not published anywhere.

If only they didn't use the SHA1 hash in their download links for updates we would easily get the updates after EOS!

The release of KB4501226 for XP was probably a mistake. I recall that a couple of updates for W2K found their way onto the downloadable update DVD a year or two after W2K went EOS in 2010. From memory the updates were for IE6SP1 and IE5.0SP4.

As it was I used W2K until mid 2013 without any updates or problems and only stopped using W2K online when the antivirus I was using went EOL. The computer was fine with W2K but under powered for comfortable usage with XP with it's 1000MHz Pentium III and maximum of 512MB of RAM.

What to do? What to Do???

As luck would have it my next door neighbor put her Dell Dimension 3000 out on the curb that same week. It turned out there was nothing wrong with the hardware but it suffered from a serious malware infection. Office 2003 would crash and was unusable.

A clean install was called for especially since XP was in Korean. In fairness I offered the computer back to my neighbor after ridding the system of malware but she indicated she bought a laptop and no longer needed the Dell.

Who knew in 2013 that the POSReady 2009 updates would keep this XP installation going until 2019. I think there may be a few more years left in it.

Probably yes.

All we need now is a "hero" who has a Premium Support contract and is willing to... well... do what it needs to be done (you know what I mean).
