  • I have found that many kb and library articles have been converted into docs.microsoft.com articles. Often, the content is not updated. The url's seem to get redirected, but I don't know how long that will last. And http: url's got converted to https:, and again I don't know if the old ones will always get redirected.

    I searched for kb 555375, and all I could find was this old thread.

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_xp-update/kb2691905/7cd63a7f-22dc-4f9f-9f10-a1775c42c5cc

    It seems to indicate that kb described how to ask a question to get the best responses. Some kb articles remain still, but I believe some are retired.

  • I don't know what the KB referred to but yes it seems they're removing older KBs The windows 2000 stuff is now nearly nonexistent and the XP/2003 content is rapidly leaving. You can provide feedback or report missing here for TechNet content tnfdback [at] microsoft [dot] com and docs.microsoft.com over here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/teamblog/a-new-feedback-system-is-coming-to-docs or also ask here.

  • It's interesting to note that the WayBack Machine's cached copy indicates that the content is applicable to Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2, both of which are still in extended support.

    I can't think of any good reason to justify retiring useful content, especially considering the above.
