There are certain OS components that we do shield, as is the case of Windows Scripting Host and Windows Help, as those may be used or have been used in the past by exploits in-the-wild. But we do not shield the entire system (i.e. all running processes) as that could cause system instability. Our technology shields applications and while it is generic/proactive in nature, it is applied on a per application basis.

MBAE will protect against exploits that target vulnerabilities, regardless if the security updates are installed or not. So to answer the question, yes MBAE will protect against exploits targeting XP once Microsoft drops support for it. But as mentioned above, it will not protect against exploits against for example privilege escalation type of exploits, only remote code execution exploits against a list of applications (browsers, addons, java, flash, acrobat, office, etc.). More info at the MBAE FAQs.

But It Won't Last For A Long Time Period, Will It?
