China has issued a stark warning at Microsoft not to meddle in an ongoing antitrust investigation into the company, following a series raids in four of the company's Chinese offices.

China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce posted a harshly worded warning online, demanding that Microsoft obey the law and "not to interfere with or hinder the investigation in any way," the New York Times reports. The government previously announced it was investigating Microsoft over neglecting to disclose product information and the way that it bundles its services.

 

Microsoft said in a statement that its business practices in the country are "designed to be compliant with Chinese law". But the Chinese government insisted that Microsoft's ending of support for Windows XP - used by 200 million in China - amounts to the company "abusing its dominant market position".
